Is the online END program accredited?

The END program is accredited by the Commission of Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). The accreditation process is completed every 7 years.

The CCMC School of Clinical Neurophysiology (CNP) was initially developed as an Electroencepalographic (EEG) Technology Program in 1973. As the profession grew, students required knowledge and training in the related disciplines of polysomnography and evoked potentials. As a result, the school added academic courses and clinical experiences to encompass all three disciplines in electroneurodiagnostic training and thus became the Electroneurodiagnostic (END) Program.
