9. Where do I get my clinical experience?

While it is the responsibility of the applicant to secure a clinical facility, the NDT Team and Clinical Site Coordinator can assist applicants who need help. We cannot assist applicants in securing a clinical site until the applicant has submitted all other (non-clinical related) application materials.

Applicants are required to provide documentation that a registered EEG technologist is willing to evaluate their skills on an on-going basis. Please keep in mind that securing a clinical site can be a lengthy process.

Grades are posted regularly in the student's gradebook in e-Learning. Final grades are generally posted within one week of the final exam. Official grade reports are mailed once the student has been cleared financially.


11. If I was trained on the job and now work in an EEG lab can this count as my shadowing requirement?
