About CBRET

The Canadian Board of Registration of Electroencephalograph Technologists, Inc. (C.B.R.E.T., Inc.) was established in 1972, and incorporated in 1982, to improve the standards of knowledge and proficiency in EEG technology and to promote a degree of uniformity in the training of EEG technologists in Canada.

Our Mission:

i) To establish standards for institutions where EEG training is to take place.

iii) To conduct examinations in order to test the knowledge and proficiency of EEG technologists.
iv) To issue certificates designating those meeting the standards of Registered Electroencephalograph Technologists (R.E.T.).
v) To maintain a current register of those technologists having successfully passed the examinations and obtained R.E.T. status.

The Board consists of 10 members, each serving a renewable three (3)-year term. The Chairman of the Board is always a physician and the Registrar is a technologist.
