Application Documents

You will be required to upload the following documents at the time of registration. To expedite the registration process, please have the following documents ready ahead of time:

  • Signed and dated Code of Conduct
  • Proof of education - scan of your high school or college diploma or a GED.
  • Program certificate - scan of your certificate if you completed an END/Neurodiagnostic technologist program (if choosing Option 2 for eligibility).

In addition, you must provide the contact information for the physician you trained under or training program director for the CAAHEP accredited program you completed.

How do I schedule my exam day/time?

The exam will be available all hours of the day on the dates listed above. You do not need to let the ABEM staff know when you are planning to take the exam during that timeframe. 

How is the exam proctored?

The exam is proctored via webcam, so you will need a computer with a webcam or to obtain an add-on webcam in order to sit for the exam. The ABEM does not provide a webcam for the exam.  A strong internet connection and a quiet space will be needed (no one else can be in the room while you are taking the exam). The exam is proctored by AI (artificial intelligence) software. It will flag certain eye or body movements as cheating (manually reviewed by our staff). More details on this will be provided closer to the exam date.

*Subsequent Attempt Fee

A reduced registration fee is available for those who have previously sat for the CNCT exam, but were unsuccessful in their attempt. Please email for a code to be used during the online registration process.

If you withdraw or are unable to appear for the examination, you must provide written notification to the ABEM in advance. If you withdraw and provide written notification prior to the refund-request deadline, $600 of the examination fee is refundable. If you withdraw after the refund request deadline, or you do not appear for the examination, all fees will be forfeited.

Americans with Disabilities Act

The ABEM supports the intent of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). The Board will make a reasonable effort to provide qualified candidates who have documented disabilities the necessary auxiliary aids and services that do not fundamentally alter the measurement of the skills or knowledge the Board’s program is intended to test or result in an undue burden [Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) §309(b)(3)]. Candidates desiring accommodations for documented disabilities must also complete the Disability Accommodation Request Form and submit it to the ABEM office by the supporting documentation deadline.
