The EEG Technologist I is an entry to mid-level position in the neurodiagnostic unit or department. The EEG Technologist I will perform EEGs procedures according
to facility policy and procedures. The EEG Technologist I will maintain patient safety during clinically significant events, and other related duties. Communication skills
are essential for this position. During EEG procedures for which competence has not been achieved, the EEG Technologist I trains under direct technical supervision.
Once training is completed and all required institution competencies have been achieved, the EEG Technologist I works under indirect technical supervision.

Direct technical supervision requires that an EEG technologist II or a physician who performs all technical aspects required for electroencephalography must be
physically present at all times during the procedure.
Indirect technical supervision requires that an EEG Technologist II or a physician who performs all technical aspects required for electroencephalography must be
