The Alvin Community College Neurodiagnostic Technology program received reaffirmation for accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).
“CAAHEP accreditations allows graduates from the ACC Neurodiagnostic Technology program to sit for their credentialing exam immediately after graduating from our program,” said Jordan Rusk, program director for the NDT program. “This allows our graduates to gain employment quickly after graduation and shows employers that they have received adequate training that is set to a high standard. CAAHEP accreditation requires all programs to follow a strict guideline of curriculum and lays a strong educational foundation for the students.”
Neurodiagnostic technologists record electrical activity from the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, somatosensory or motor nerve systems. They provide valuable data to diagnose and treat conditions such as neuromuscular disorders, brain tumors, seizure disorders, strokes and degenerative brain disease.
The program was first accredited by CAAHEP in 2011 and reaffirmed in 2016. The will undergo reaffirmation again in 2027.
“Receiving continuing accreditation status is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the faculty and staff of the Neurodiagnostic Technology program,” Rusk said. “We strive to stay in touch with industry standards and provide the best education possible for our students. I am proud to be the director of such a great program here at Alvin Community College.”
