Continuing Education Rationale
Certification is a method of assuring the medical community and the public that an individual is qualified by knowledge and skills to practice within the profession. After initial certification, advancing technology and changing job responsibilities may require a technologist to update their knowledge and skills consistent with any new developments in medical imaging and radiation therapy. Continuing education (CE) provides a mechanism for technologists to fulfill
their responsibility to maintain competence and prevent professional obsolescence.
Participation in CE demonstrates accountability to peers, physicians, health care facilities, and the public. The result is improved quality of healthcare for the patient. It also reinforces the Code of Ethics which is jointly endorsed by the ARRT and by the ASRT.
Continuing education helps maintain competency and prevent obsolescence.
