There are three options for meeting your CE requirements:
You can earn credits by completing educational activities that meet criteria established by the ARRT. Of the required 24 CE credits, all must be Category A or A+ credit.
You can pass an ARRT primary certification examination in a discipline you have not previously passed and for which you are eligible. Primary examinations in nuclear medicine through the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board also are accepted, as well as medical dosimetry certification through the Medical Dosimetrist Certification Board and certification in diagnostic medical sonography, diagnostic vascular technology and diagnostic cardiac sonography through the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers. Certification in radiology administration through the Association for Medical Imaging Management is also accepted. Technologists who become certified in an additional discipline earn 24 Category A CE credits.
You can pass a postprimary exam for which you are eligible. Postprimary exams are the ARRT exams in mammography, cardiovascular-interventional technology, vascular sonography, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, sonography, bone densitometry, quality management and sonography. Technologists who have earned a postprimary certificate earn 24 Category A CE credits.
For example, a technologist already certified in radiography must earn 24 CE credits in a two-year period. To satisfy her CE requirement, she can complete CE activities worth 24 credits from activities approved for Category A or A+ credit, become certified in an additional primary discipline or earn a postprimary certificate.
