At a recent Board of Trustees meeting, the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) extended the recognition of three organizations as continuing education (CE) partners:
- The American College of Radiology (ACR)
- The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM)
- The Florida Department of Health – Bureau of Radiation Control (DOH-BRC)
Each organization earned three-year recognition as a CE approver. ARRT evaluates the organizations based on its recognition criteria for CE partners.
CE approvers review CE activities and determine whether educational activities meet ARRT requirements. If so, CE approvers determine the credit value awarded for completing the activity. ARRT also refers to CE approvers as Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanisms (RCEEMs) or State Licensing Agencies (SLAs). Florida approves CE activities for Category A credit for Registered Technologists licensed in Florida.
ARRT updates its list of currently recognized entities whenever its board continues recognition of a CE partner or when a recognized CE Partner decides to discontinue its participation with ARRT. The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) has decided to stop approving CE activities for ARRT.
