Arlington, TX (March 2012) - Concorde Career Colleges Inc. announced today a new Neurodiagnostic Technology program in Arlington. Concorde's new Associate of Applied Science degree program will provide local students with an opportunity to train for an exciting career in a rapidly growing Neurodiagnostic Technology field.
Neurodiagnostic Technologists record the electrical activity of the brain, providing critical information about potential seizures, sleep disorders, or patient responses during surgery.
"This is such an interesting career choice to pursue," explains Concorde's Neurodiagnostic Technology Program Director Mary Feltman. "Professionals in this field really enjoy the variety of work they do and the technology they get to use."
Concorde students receive classroom and laboratory training in an industry-modeled facility that features the kind of equipment and technology used in hospitals and diagnostic clinics. Feltman added that Concorde students also receive hands-on training with local medical providers through arranged externships.
The Texas Workforce Commission's Labor Market and Career Information Department estimates that Neurodiagnostic Technology jobs could grow by 28% through 2018.
"It's a real privilege to offer the only NDT program in the Dallas-Fort Worth area," explains Arlington Campus President Rebecca Zielinski. "We're looking forward to making an impact in the Neurodiagnostic Technology job demand here in Texas."
