To get right into that question: does that course teach you how to perform and interpret neurophysiological tests such as EEG and EMG decently?...
I can only help with this one question

You will definitely learn to perform the tests, and I think you also learn how to interpret them. However as a neurologist myself our colleagues the neurophysiology doctors usually interpret the EEGs and report back to us. There are a few NCSs / EMGs reported by the senior neurophysiologists though.

I will leave the other questions to those in the know!

Thank you for your kind reply. Just few more questions if I may since you have a neurological background , should I worry about this part in the program description:
"Please note: this programme will not lead to a qualification as a Healthcare Scientist (Neurophysiologist).
Considering I'm an international student and this will not prevent me from performing the tests in my country, should I worry?
Why this program does not lead to that qualification?
The degree itself is recognized?

That's OK. If you read the second page on the HealthCareers site, it says

With a relevant degree
You can apply for a place on the graduate-entry NHS Scientist Training Programme with a 1st or 2.1 either in an undergraduate honours degree or an integrated master’s degree in a relevant pure or applied science subject, typically physiology, pure or applied physics, engineering, biology or human biology or sports science (if there is significant scientific content). If you have a relevant 2.2 honours degree, you will also be considered if you have a higher degree* in a subject relevant to the specialism for which you are applying. (*Higher degree as defined on page 17 of The Frameworks for Higher Education Qualifications of UK Degree-Awarding Bodies Please note this does not include postgraduate diplomas or postgraduate certificates.)

If you are unsure, perhaps you can send an email to the NHS Scientist Training Programme website? I have very limited information on training to be a neurophysiology technician!

Thank you Sir. I think it's possible through that way but it will take too long unfortunately. Therefore I'll be mostly concerned about the methods and the quality of teaching (especially practical) in that course which I hope it is good (if I got accepted of course) since I don't plan to work in UK. being qualified as a neurophysiologist in UK is a big plus though
