This track was created to give working technologists the opportunity to take boards, to keep technologists in the field by recognizing their experience, and to support the workforce. A skill-based assessment of measurement for electrode placement will be a pre-requisite for this new pathway. This pathway and skill assessment are being added based on concerns expressed by technologists in the field, the ABRET Board of Directors, and eligibility petitions.
