AANEM Joins Coalition in Louisiana to Protect CNCT Technologists 4/27/2018
AANEM joined a coalition this week to weigh in with the Louisiana state legislature on a pending bill that would severely restrict the use of professional certifications (e.g. the Certified Nerve Conduction Technologist (CNCT) certification from the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine) in the state.
Louisiana House Bill 748
, the “Occupational Licensing Review Act,” would prohibit use of the terms “certification” and “registration” for nongovernmental professional credentialing unless state law requires certification or registration to work in the profession (as it does for physicians).
AANEM urges members in Louisiana who are concerned about this bill to contact their state senator
and voice their opposition to HB 748.
