1. Do I have to have a college degree to get a job as an END Technologist?

Yes. In 2005, The Board of Trustees of the American Society of Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists declared that the requirement for entry-level positions in the profession is an associate degree in END Technology.

2. What are the career opportunities for END Technologists?

Employment opportunities are abundant. Particularly strong growth areas are Polysomnography and the specialty areas of long-term monitoring for epilepsy and intraoperative monitoring. There is a continuous need for well-educated Electroneurodiagnostic technologists, and the demand grows as new labs open and existing labs expand.

3. Can I transfer credits from Tri-C to a 4-year college?

Yes.  You can easily transfer your Tri-C credits to bachelor’s degree programs in Applied Science in Allied Health from Youngstown State University (YSU) and Cleveland State University (CSU). This degree leads to career opportunities in health care management.   You can start on your YSU bachelor’s degree while you’re in the Tri-C END Tech program and possibly finish your bachelor’s degree with just one extra year. Even better, you can take YSU online programs at Tri-C tuition prices and complete the courses anytime you want.

4. What skills or qualities will I need to do well in this program?

You will need an inquiring mind, above average intelligence and an interest in life-long learning. You will also need to display tact, patience, and compassion when working with people. Manual dexterity and a capacity to deal with visual, electrical, and computer concepts are important.

    • BIO 2331 (formerly BIO-2330), Anatomy & Physiology I
  • Core courses can be repeated only once to improve a grade
  • Electroneurodiagnostic (END) observation
  • Background check (you must complete this before you begin the Program)


6. When should I take my General Education courses?


You can take your General Education courses anytime during the END Technology program.
