The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists has announced revisions to its Continuing Education Requirements for Renewal of Registration
Among the changes are updates to CE certificates of participation. Section 14 emphasizes that CE certificates must include preprinted completion dates and that handwritten dates will no longer be accepted. In addition, CE certificates of completion must include the Category A or Category A+ designation as well as identification of the approving ARRT-Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism.
In addition, Section 13 specifies that in order to fulfill CE requirements, academic courses completed on or after Jan. 1, 2015, must be completed in institutions accredited by mechanisms recognized by the United States Department of Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. The institution also must be authorized to grant degrees by Congress, the state government or a recognized sovereign Indian tribe.
The revisions were posted for public comment and adopted by the ARRT Board of Trustees in September 2013.
