Celebrating over 55 Years of Credentialing Technologists

CLTM Earns National Accreditation


The American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET) is pleased to announce that the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) has granted accreditation to the ABRET CLTM program for a period of five years.

ABRET maintains a voluntary credentialing program for technologists performing specialized long term monitoring in Epilepsy Monitoring Units and Intensive Care Units. Success on a comprehensive examination that measures recognized competencies culminates in the awarding of a Certification in (Neurophysiologic) Long Term Monitoring (CLTM).

Accreditation status demonstrates to the profession and the public that a program has undergone an independent or third party review of practices, and meets the established standards for accreditation. For ABRET, accreditation will demonstrate that the examinations are psychometrically sound and legally defensible. For ABRET certificants, NCCA accreditation is a symbol of quality and means the credentialing program complies with national standards.

NCCA has accredited approximately 300 programs from professional credentialing and certification organizations. For more information on NCCA accreditation, visit www.credentialingexcellence.org/NCCA.

ABRET is the credentialing board for EEG, Evoked Potential, Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring Technologists and Long Term Monitoring Technologists. ABRET has been credentialing technologists for nearly 50 years.
