Accreditation

ASNM's annual meetings and symposia typically offer the following credit types.  ASNM collects the sign in / out sheets and evaluations from each event and submits them to the credit providers for processing.  Should you have questions regarding your credits, please contact the specific provider as listed in the event program.

  • CME - Accredited CME is based on a learner-centered, continuous improvement model. Accredited providers facilitate self-directed, practice-based education that supports physicians’ commitment to lifelong learning. Whether health care professionals work in clinical care, research, administration, executive leadership, or other areas of medicine, accredited CME is tailored to their needs and scope of practice.
  • ACE - ASET Continuing Education Credits (ACE) are awarded to programs who apply to ASET for this designation and who maintain the highest quality of education for the profession. Attendees are then awarded ACE credits for the number of hours in which they participate in a particular program. These ACE credits can then be used to document continuing education for re-certification or professional development within a hospital setting. ACE credits are recognized by ABRET and BRPT for re-certification.
  • AAA - In order for members to obtain a full range of training, the American Academy of Audiology partners with its approved CE Providers to offer CEUs. The Academy records CEUs submitted by CE Providers in the member’s record which is then available to members through the CE Registry. The CE Registry is a quick and easy way to track your CEUs - most states recognize the Academy’s transcript as an official document.

 

Certification

Certification programs for intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring include:

  • American Board of Neurophysiologic Monitoring -  The ABNM endorses the examination of ABRET for certification at a technical level (CNIM) and has therefore focused on certification at a level which includes professional neurophysiologic data interpretation and technical supervision. 
  • American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists - ABRET seeks to encourage, establish and maintain the highest standards of clinical Electroencephalography, Evoked Potential Technology, and Neurophysiologic Intraoperative and Long Term monitoring, by offering credentialing exams to evaluate the skills and knowledge of technologists, and by supporting lab accreditation.
