An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that detects electrical activity in the brain. It can determine changes in brain activity that may be useful in diagnosing brain disorders and is also used in polysomnography (sleep studies).
An EEG Technician places electrodes around the head in a specific pattern called the 10-20 placement and records the electrical activity of the brain. EEG tests are done in hospitals and in many doctor's offices. Trained EEG Tech's are in high demand!
This program is an entry-level self-paced independent study program. You study on your own schedule from the convenience of your home (or anywhere internet access is available), and there is no deadline for completion. The program is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! The program focuses on the basic technical principles of the EEG and the core competencies needed to perform this job.
The program consists of ten courses, a video reference library, and a glossary of terms. A final exam reviews all of the topics covered and assesses knowledge of your comprehension. Continuing education reference material is also included in the form of EEG website links, power point presentations, videos, and much more!
After successful completion of all 10 courses of instruction, a Certificate of Achievement is issued. The program is organized on a pass/no pass basis. The program provides affordable, convenient, online training of the fundamentals of EEG technology for job seekers with limited formal training in the EEG field.
EEG 101: The goal of this course is to provide the learner with a comprehensive vocabulary of terms commonly used to describe EEG findings, the structures of the central nervous system and the disease states frequently seen in the EEG lab. The learner will be able to listen to each term introduced in the course, to ensure proper pronunciation.
EEG 102: During this course, the learner develops the basic skills necessary to measure a head using the International 10/20 System of Electrode Placement and accurately apply a standard set of electrodes.
EEG 103: This course is a tutorial, designed to provide a focused study session on the concept of EEG waveform polarity. This course builds a foundation of basic information about the differential amplifier and how EEG signals of various voltages and electrical charges will be displayed. Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to understand EEG samples and determine the polarity of waveforms.
EEG 104: This course will introduce the learner to key concepts of digital technology and how digital EEG instruments record and display EEG signals. The learner will become familiar with common computer terminology and features of digital EEG equipment, to enable the technologist to become an informed consumer when purchasing and using digital EEG equipment.
EEG 105: This course provides an overview of normal EEG patterns seen in the adult, during the waking and sleep states, and explains the features of the EEG that are essential to the visual analysis and verbal description of the EEG.
EEG 106: This course provides a comprehensive foundation in all of the subjects related to the instrumentation of the EEG recording system including electronics, computer components, and differential amplifier. Proper use and care of the equipment is explained, including electrical safety, maintenance and troubleshooting for malfunctions.
EEG 107: The purpose of this course is to familiarize both entry-level and current neurodiagnostic professionals with the basic principles of basic electricity as used in neurodiagnostics, physiologic aspect of current, and safety issues when dealing with patients. This course is excellent for those working in EEG, PSG, NCS, and LTM.
EEG 108: This course will familiarize the technologist with those skills particular to
neurodiagnostic lab duties and routine EEG procedures. These duties include application of electrodes, making use of activation procedures, documenting the record appropriately, establishing patient rapport, taking a patient history, providing a technical description of EEG findings, performing ECI and bedside recordings, what to do in a medical emergency, how to use appropriate infection control techniques and an overview of neurodiagnostic lab management. Also a brief history of EEG technology is included.
EEG 109: This course is designed to provide the skills in recognizing common and some unusual artifacts seen in routine EEG recordings and troubleshooting skills for the elimination of such artifacts when possible. A brief review of the role of impedance and common mode rejection (CMR) and the role of these factors in the presence or elimination of artifacts is also included in the course.
EEG 110: This course is designed to provide the skills in recognizing seizures both clinically and electrographically.
The program will also address HIPAA laws as well as proper charting and reporting.
ALL texts, work books, hand-outs, and supplies are included in the tuition.
HOPE YOU HAD A GREAT SUMMER. LETS HAVE EVEN A BETTER FALL.
