What is the relationship between ABRET, ASET and CAAHEP?
ABRET is a national credentialing board, and does not have memberships or offer education. ABRET manages four credentials, R. EEG T., R. EP T., CNIM, CLTM and three Laboratory Accreditation Programs (LAB-EEG, LAB-NIOM, LAB-LTM).
ASET: The Neurodiagnostic Society, formerly known as American Society of Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists, is the professional membership (trade) organization for NDT/END Technologists. ASET provides continuing education, educational resources, an annual convention, webinars, and other services for technologists, including management of the ACE Credit Program. Please visit their website for more information, www.aset.org.
ABRET recognizes the ASET as a leader in neurodiagnostic technology, as a resource for educational materials in neurodiagnostics, and as the premier membership organization for the profession.
ABRET does acknowledge the importance of meetings, workshops, and other educational tools for board preparation, but does not sponsor or endorse specific educational courses, workshops, or materials for board preparation prepared by a third party, and is not responsible for the content of the programs or materials. All sponsors of “board prep” programs focused on the ABRET examinations are asked to include a disclaimer in their materials.
ABRET recognizes the Neurodiagnostic educational programs accredited by The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) as having met standards and outcomes assigned by the Committee on Education in Neurodiagnostic Technology (CoA-NDT.)
