Tennessee X-Ray License Continuing Education Requirements and Renewal February 04 2019

For Full Certification and Limited Certification X-Ray Operators

X-Ray technologists and operators licensed in the state of Tennessee are required to renew their certification license every biennial renewal date. The biennial renewal date takes place every two years and coincides with the certificate holder’s birthday.

How many Radiology Continuing Education Course Credits Do I Need to Renew My Tennessee X-Ray License?

Part of the renewal process requires each technologist, full certification holders or limited certification holders, to complete 20 hours of radiologic related continuing education courses.

EverLearn Radiology CE Courses

The courses taken must be approved by the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners. Courses approved by any of the following organizations are automatically considered board approved continuing education courses:

American Society of Radiologic Technologists
American Registry of Radiologic Technologists
American College of Radiology
American Medical Association
Tennessee Medical Association
Tennessee Radiological Society
Tennessee Society of Radiologic Technologists

Good news, all EverLearn online radiology CE courses are approved by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and are accepted by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), therefore the state of Tennessee will accept EverLearn X-Ray and radiology continuing education (CE) courses.

If you’d like to read the Tennessee license renewal and continuing education requirements for yourself, you can find a link to the full rules and regulations governing X-Ray operators at the Tennessee Department of Health website, X-Ray Operator’s page. Reference chapter 0880-05. In the rules and regulations document, proceed to page 10, section titled “0880-05-09 Continuing Education” to read the rules and regulations pertaining to continuing education requirements for X-Ray operators in Tennessee.

EverLearn Radiology CE Courses

Are there Specific CE Requirements for Tennessee X-Ray Operators?

Yes, 20 hours of radiology continuing education (CE) credits are required to be completed each two year license renewal period.

You can’t repeat a course in your two year license renewal period. Each course can only count once toward the 20 CE credit hours required each license renewal period.

Of the 20 CE credit hours required, 2 of the credit hours must pertain to the ARRT’s standard of ethics if the technologist is fully certified. For limited certification holders, the 2 credit hours should cover content relevant to appropriate rules, regulations, statutes, and other subjects related to compliance in regards to holding a certification as an X-Ray operator or radiologic technologist.

EverLearn’s Radiography Patient Care I course, which is worth 6 radiology CE credits, includes content that pertains to ethics in patient care. Details of the ARRT’s standard of ethics and rules of ethics are discussed in detail. Therefore, this course would be a good option for radiologic technologists licensed in Tennessee.

EverLearn Radiology CE Courses

Which EverLearn Courses Should I Take?

Since all EverLearn courses are Tennessee board due to the courses being approved by the ASRT, it really is a matter of personal preference. To obtain the minimum requirement of 20 hours of continuing education credits, we recommend the following courses:

Radiography Patient Care I - worth 6.0 CE credits
Radiography Patient Care II - worth 4.25 CE credits
Digital Radiography of the Chest - worth 8.5 CE credits
On the Edge with Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism - 2.25 CE credits

Another option, would be to complete two bundle packs of CE credits. Check out our convenient bundle packs and see if you’d prefer that versus signing up for single courses individually.

If radiologic technologists/X-Ray operators licensed in the state of Tennessee complete the four radiology CE courses listed above, they will earn a total of 20.75 CE credits and will satisfy their 20 hour continuing education requirement for Tennessee license renewal.

How do I provide proof of Radiology Continuing Education Compliance for my Tennessee X-Ray Operators License?

Providing proof of compliance with the State of Tennessee radiology continuing education requirements is easy. Follow the following three easy steps and you’ll be all set!

Make sure the course completion dates that are on your certificates fall within the two year period prior to your renewal date.

On the Tennessee board form during license renewal, you must attest (by checking a box or via signature) that you attended and completed the required radiology continuing education credit hours and that they were obtained within the two years prior to your biennial renewal date.

Lastly, you must retain proof and documentation of attendance and completion of all your radiology continuing education courses for four years from the end of the calendar year in which the courses were completed. If the board selects your license for random inspection and verification, then at this point in time you must provide the board with documentation of your completed continuing education courses.

With EverLearn, it’s convenient to provide proof of attendance and completion of your continuing education courses to the Tennessee Department of Health, Board of Medical Examiners. EverLearn’s online learning platform stores all your completed courses so at anytime you can always sign back into the system to re-download or access your certificates of completion. Also, a PDF copy of your certificates of completion are automatically emailed to you as well when you complete your courses. So, you can archive them on your computer or print them out and store them in your file cabinet. Below is an example from EverLearn’s online learning showing the storing of completed courses for a technologist. This technologist can sign into the system at anytime and download her certificates by clicking the “certificate” button of each completed course or simply view the number of courses and total credits she has completed over time.

Where to Find Florida Radiology CEU Courses and How to Decipher the State’s Requirements July 06 2018

Certified Radiologic Technologists (CRT) or Basic X-Ray Machine Operators (BXMO or BMO) licensed in the State of Florida must complete continuing education as a requirement of license renewal.

Each Florida State radiology license/certificate is valid for 2 years. Within that 2 year period, prior to renewing your license, you and all other Florida technologists must complete 12 hours of continuing education, otherwise known as Florida radiology CEUs.

There’s good news! EverLearn is an approved radiology CEU provider with the State of Florida.

ALL of our online radiology CEU courses have been approved by the Florida Department of Health, Bureau of Radiation Control, (FDOH-BRC). The Florida DOH-BRC Course number found on each EverLearn certificate of completion verifies this. You can find us listed as a continuing education (CE) provider on the FDOH-BRC website here.

All 12 Florida Radiology CEU credits can be easily obtained by signing up for one of EverLearn’s Bundle Packs of CEU courses. Each Bundle Pack is worth at least 12 Florida Radiology CEU credits.

EverLearn's Online Florida Radiology CEU Courses

Our Bundle Packs are a great way to easily complete your continuing education requirements for your radiologic technologist (CRT license) license or your Basic X-Ray machine operator license (BMO license).

And, in addition, all EverLearn courses are also accepted by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Therefore, if you have an ARRT license as well as a Florida license, you can most certainly use these CEU credits towards both licenses.

Florida Radiology CEU Requirements Step by Step

A total of 12 CEU Credits is Required
A total of 12 hours of continuing education (CE) credits are required each 2 year license renewal period/cycle.

Just a reminder, if you also carry an ARRT license (American Registry of Radiologic Technologists), you are required to obtain 24 CEU credits every 2 years. Good news, EverLearn CEU courses can be used both for a Florida CRT/BXMO license and ARRT license.

Florida Radiology Continuing Education Requirements

No More than 3 Credits can be Categorized as Personal Development
No more than 3 of the 12 CEs can be classified as personal development, which are courses NOT directly related to the radiologic sciences and our field of practice as radiologic technologists (i.e. CPR).

The remaining CE credit hours (7+) must be classified as technical credits and should relate to the radiological sciences (i.e. radiation protection, disease processes, equipment operation, radiation physics, positioning, etc.).

All courses and Florida radiology CEU credits earned with EverLearn are approved for technical credit with the State of Florida.

So, when you take all 12 CEUs with EverLearn you can rest assured that you are fulfilling this requirement for your Florida CRT or BXMO license renewal.

All CEU Credits Must Be Completed in the Current Two Year Renewal Period
All Florida CEU credits used to renew your CRT or BXMO license must be completed and earned in the current two year renewal period/cycle.

Are you wondering how to find out what your two year renewal period or cycle is?

It’s easy, pull out your Florida Certified Radiologic Technologist license (CRT) or Basic X-Ray Machine Operator license (BXMO). You know, the paper version that gets postal mailed to you.

Then located the expiration date on the license. The license renewal period/cycle is two years prior to that expiration date.

For example, if the expiration date on my license was November 30, 2020. Then my two year license renewal period would be from December 1, 2018 through November 30, 2020. And, I would be required to complete 12 Florida Radiology CEUs within that two year period.

You can also locate your license expiration date by signing into Florida’s Medical Quality Assurance online portal (see image below). All you have to do is sign into your account and click the “Show Details” button to see the details and current status of your Florida Radiologic Technology license.

Florida MQA Online Services

If you’ve renewed your Florida CRT or BXMO license online in the past then you have an online login with the State of Florida and you can log in here.

If you have not renewed online in the past, you can start the registration process online here. Once you’ve landed on that page, just click the “No” button and then the “Register” button and you’ll be taken to the online application to register.

CEU Courses Can’t be Repeated in the Same Two Year License Renewal Period
Radiology CEU courses used to renew your license can’t be repeated and used multiple times in the same two year license renewal period.

However, courses CAN be repeated in a subsequent renewal period/cycle.

For example, if I complete a Florida radiology CEU course worth 6 CEU credits, I can’t take that course twice to satisfy the 12 CEU credits required for my current license renewal. However, I can take that same course again in the future during my next two year license renewal period. I hope this makes sense! If you have any questions, hit us up and send a message via our online contact form.

It’s Required to Complete a 1 Hour HIV/Aids CEU Course - But it’s Free! Read Below.
You must also complete a 1 hour HIV/Aids course for license renewal. This can be easily accomplished, for FREE, by reading Florida’s Omnibus AIDS Act: A Brief Legal Guide for Healthcare Professionals.

Then during the license renewal process, you’ll document this by acknowledging and saying yes you’ve read this document. It’s that easy, and did I mention, it’s FREE!! :)

Recommended EverLearn Radiology CEU Courses for Florida CRT or BXMO License Renewal

Pick and choose! Any of the EverLearn Radiology CE Bundle Packs will provide the 12 Florida Radiology CEUs needed for your license renewal.

EverLearn's Online Florida Radiology CEU Courses

All courses and CEU credits in our bundle packs have been approved by the Florida Department of Health, Bureau of Radiation Control, for technical CE credits. And, since 12 CEU credits are required for license renewal, our bundle packs are a great option!

Bundle Pack 1 is worth 12 CEU credits and includes 5 online CE courses.

Bundle Pack 2 is worth a total of 12.75 CEU credits and includes 3 CE courses.

Bundle Pack 3 is worth 12.5 CEU credits and includes 2 CE courses.

Any of these bundle packs are a great option to fulfill your Florida Radiology CEU requirements for renewing either your CRT or BXMO radiologic technologist license.

Are you looking for less than 12 CEU credits? No problem, we’ve got you covered there too! Check out our vast array of single CEU courses you can choose from.

Reporting Florida Radiology CEU Credits to the Florida Department of Health

On behalf of technologists, EverLearn submits completed Florida radiology CEU credits to the State of Florida once the course has been completed and CEU credit has been earned. We submit credits to the State once per week.

However, the CE coordinator with the State says that it can take 2-4 weeks for the credits to be processed. Because of this, we recommend completing your CE credits at least 4 months prior to renewing your license if at all possible.

If your renewal is fast approaching, and your CEU credits don’t get processed in time don’t worry!

If this happens and you should need to renew your license prior to your credits being processed, the CE coordinator with the state says you can either upload your certificates through your online account with the state.

Alternatively, you can fax your certificates to their office at 850-245-4791 or email them to mqaonlineservice@flhealth.gov.

And, just an FYI, the State of Florida Department of Health will only be able to accept CEU credits from technologists if you have received your renewal notice.

If you’d like to review Florida Radiology CEU requirements you can read an overview on the Florida Department of Health’s website here.

Wrap Up

I totally get it! Sometimes completing your Florida Radiology CEU credits in time for your license renewal can be stressful and time consuming.

Rest assured though that EverLearn is here for you!

Our online radiology CEU courses are accessible at any time, any place, and from anywhere (as long as you have high speed internet and a computer, tablet, or smartphone).

Now, you can take a deep breath and breathe a sigh of relief! Because with EverLearn you can easily and conveniently meet your Florida CEU requirements, even if your on a time crunch and waited to the the last minute.

Give EverLearn CE courses a try! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed :)

ARRT Category A CE Credits: What They Are and Where to Find Them November 28 2017

Learn Why RTs Choose EverLearn for ARRT Category A CE Credits 

Every radiologic technologist (RT) certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) must fulfill mandatory continuing education (CE) requirements, earning 24 ARRT Category A CE credits each biennium. Those who are currently working toward certification or facing their first reporting deadline may be wondering what exactly ARRT Category A CE credits are and where to find them. Read on for the answers to those questions, and discover why a growing number of RTs rely on EverLearn for a faster and easier way to earn radiology CE credits online.

EverLearn Category A CE Credits

What Are ARRT Category A CE Credits?

While there are many different providers of CE courses in the healthcare field, radiologic technologists must complete courses that are approved for ARRT Category A CE credits. The ARRT itself does not offer CE courses; instead, RTs must seek courses that have been evaluated and approved by a Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism (RCEEM).

To qualify as an RCEEM, an organization must be a national, radiology-focused, nonprofit association. ARRT-authorized RCEEMs are responsible for evaluating the content, quality, and integrity of radiology CE courses based on such factors as educational objectives, content selection, and educational methods and materials. Courses that RCEEMs have deemed as appropriate educational activities for RTs are approved for ARRT Category A CE credits.

RTs should confirm that the radiology courses they enroll in are approved for ARRT Category A CE credits, though they also have the option of taking courses approved for Category A+ credit. These designations are not intended to signify the relative quality of courses; rather, Category A indicates that a course is suitable for RTs, while Category A+ denotes that the course content is relevant to the radiologist extender and will meet the CE requirements for a Registered Radiologist Assistant (RRA).

Browse EverLearn Category A CE Credits

RCEEMS Authorized to Approve Category A Credits

ARRT maintains a list of organizations with current RCEEM status on its website; they can be found in the CE Sponsors section under the “Partners” tab. The following organizations are authorized to approve courses for ARRT Category A CE credits:

  • American Association of Medical Dosimetrists (AAMD)
  • American College of Radiology (ACR)
  • AHRA: The Association for Medical Imaging Management
  • American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM)
  • American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC)
  • American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT)
  • Association of Vascular and Interventional Radiographers (AVIR)
  • Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT)
  • Medical Dosimetrist Certification Board (MDCB)
  • Radiological Society of North America (RSNA)
  • Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS)
  • Society for MR Radiographers and Technologists (SMRT)
  • Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging – Technologist Section (SNMMI-TS)
  • Society for Vascular Ultrasound (SVU)

Where Can RTs Find ARRT Category A CE Credits?

Radiology CE courses are offered by many different organizations, including the RCEEMs listed above. However, RCEEMs also approve courses developed by other CE providers, which substantially broadens the range of courses available to RTs. When purchasing courses from a CE provider, RTs should always verify that they are approved for ARRT Category A CE credits.

EverLearn is one such provider, offering a selection of online radiology courses that have been approved for ARRT Category A CE credits by the ASRT. Because all EverLearn courses are ASRT-approved, RTs can be assured the credits they’ve earned will be accepted by the ARRT and counted toward their biennial CE requirements. To provide further peace of mind, all EverLearn courses come with a satisfaction guarantee. If an RT has issues with a course and contacts EverLearn with those concerns, EverLearn will issue a refund provided that CE credit has not been awarded. This means there is never a risk with EverLearn courses—RTs will either receive ARRT Category A CE credits for their completed courses or they’ll get their money back.

EverLearn Offers Radiology CE Courses Online With Same-Day Certificates

RTs who experienced the old CE methods—book-based learning and mail-in or fax-back exams—demanded a better solution. Founded by an RT with a master’s degree in education, EverLearn evolved from the need for a faster, easier, and more convenient way to earn ARRT Category A CE credits. EverLearn radiology courses can be purchased and completed online, offering instant access to course materials and exams.

When RTs achieve a passing score, the results page will include a link to download their certificate of completion—making it possible to purchase a course and report CE credits on the same day.

Whether you’re seeking a few last-minute credits to meet your deadline or all 24 credits required for your current biennium, EverLearn has flexible options to suit your needs.

ARRT CE Credits: EverLearn Online Courses Take the Stress Out of Biennium Deadlines October 27 2017

Online Learning, Testing, and Certificates Make It Easy to Earn ARRT CE Credits on Time

Earning your Radiologic Technologist (RT) certification from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) is a great accomplishment—but it requires ongoing work and diligent efforts to maintain that designation in good standing throughout your career. Not only must you renew your certification and registration each year, but you must also meet biennial continuing education (CE) requirements. Currently, all RTs must complete 24 ARRT CE credits biennially. Don't worry. EverLearn is here for you. We offer bundle packs of CE courses so you can easily earn all 24 credits.

View Bundle Packs of CE Courses

Biennial Deadlines for ARRT CE Credits

A radiologic technologist’s certification and registration period is linked to his or her birth month. Each year, an application for renewal must be filed with the ARRT before the end of the month preceding the RT’s birth month. While certification and registration are renewed annually, RTs have two years to complete their required ARRT CE credits—a period referred to as their biennium reporting period.

Some technologists aim to complete 12 ARRT CE credits per year to stay on schedule; others regard the biennium reporting period as an opportunity to take a break from radiology courses for a year before having to earn the required credits the following year. Either way, all RTs must accrue a total of 24 ARRT CE credits before the end of their biennium reporting period and maintain proof of participation for those CE activities.

EverLearn Online Radiology Courses Simplify the CE Process

ARRT CE requirements can be a source of stress and anxiety, particularly for those whose biennium reporting period is fast approaching. In the past, this often meant ordering textbooks, mailing or faxing back exams, and waiting for the test results and certificate of completion. EverLearn CE was established in response to RTs’ demand for a faster, easier, and more convenient way to earn ARRT CE credits.

With EverLearn, the entire CE process takes place online—from browsing and purchasing online radiology courses, to reviewing the course materials and completing the post-test, to obtaining exam results and receiving a certificate of completion—making it possible (and easy) to earn same-day ARRT CE credits. In a matter of minutes, RTs can complete the checkout process, log into the online classroom, and be on their way to meeting their biennium reporting deadline. Multiple courses (ranging from 1 to 8.5 credits each) and convenient multi-course bundle packs give learners the flexibility to choose the course topics and credit hours that best suit their needs.

Online Learning Offers an Expedient Solution for CE Probation

The ability to earn same-day CE credits with EverLearn means you’ll never have to miss an ARRT deadline, as long as you purchase and complete your courses before the end of your biennium reporting period. But suppose time has gotten away from you and you’ve missed your deadline—what happens then? If you’ve submitted your application for renewal but were unable to complete all 24 ARRT CE credits in time, you’ll be placed on CE probation until you make up the remaining credits, and your credential card will reflect that probationary status.

CE probation is essentially a six-month grace period in which RTs are allowed to complete the ARRT CE credits they need to fulfill the 24-credit requirement. Those who earn the necessary credits can then submit a CE Probation Report Form and a $50 fee; when compliance is confirmed, CE Probation status will be removed and a new credential card will be issued. While ARRT allows a grace period to catch up on missing CE credits, time is of the essence—another missed deadline will result in discontinuation of certification and registration. View the ARRT Continuing Education Requirements document, section 9, to read about CE probation status.  

To ensure you don’t miss your extended deadline, it’s best to purchase your CE courses as soon as possible. With EverLearn, all of your purchased courses will appear in your online dashboard; you can then complete each course on your own schedule. The sooner you earn your remaining ARRT CE credits, the sooner you’ll receive your new credential card—and the more time you’ll have to complete the next 24 credits for your current biennium.

Mix and Match Single Courses or Bundle Packs to Earn 24 ARRT CE Credits

If you haven’t yet earned any of the CE credits due for your current biennium reporting period, you can acquire all 24 credits in one purchase with two value-priced CE bundle packs from EverLearn. Each bundle pack is worth at least 12 CE units and contains multiple courses. For example, if you purchase Bundle Pack 1 and Bundle Pack 2, you’ll have access to eight courses worth a combined total of 24.75 ARRT CE credits.

If you’ve already completed some of the CE credits required for your current biennium reporting period, you have a couple of options to earn the remaining credits. If you purchase an EverLearn bundle pack, you have the flexibility to complete just the number of credits needed for your current biennium while saving any remaining courses for your next biennium. Alternately, you can purchase single courses based on the number of ARRT CE credits you need to meet your biennium reporting requirements.

Bundle Packs of 12-24 Radiology CE Credits

Easily Track and Confirm CE Credits Using the EverLearn Dashboard

When you purchase online radiology courses from EverLearn, all purchased and completed courses are displayed in your personal dashboard. (Tip: Always use the same email address when purchasing courses to ensure you don’t end up with multiple dashboards under separate logins.) By default, the login screen displays all Enrolled Courses (those purchased but not yet completed), making it easy to track your progress toward your biennium reporting goals. You can also see all of the ARRT CE credits you’ve earned to date by clicking the Completed Courses tab. This summary view lists each course title along with its CE credit value, test score, and completion date, and you also have the option to quickly relaunch the course or instantly download your certificate of completion—making it easy to provide the ARRT with proof of participation.

EverLearn Guarantees Satisfaction and Acceptance of ARRT CE Credits

The ARRT will only accept CE credits for courses that have been evaluated and approved for Category A or A+ credit by a Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism (RCEEM). All EverLearn courses are approved for Category A credit by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT), which holds current RCEEM status. This means RTs who complete online radiology courses through EverLearn are guaranteed to earn ARRT CE credits.

EverLearn also offers a satisfaction guarantee—if technologists are not satisfied with their online learning experience, EverLearn will refund the purchase price provided CE credit has not been awarded. Therefore, all EverLearn purchases are risk-free; you’ll either earn ARRT CE credits, or you’ll get your money back.

If you’re ready to try an easier, faster, and more convenient way to meet your biennium reporting requirements, purchase your courses to sign up and start earning ARRT CE credits today!

Rad Tech CE Credits: Explore the Top 10 Benefits of EverLearn Online Courses October 20 2017

EverLearn Offers Many Advantages to Radiologic Technologists Interested in Earning Rad Tech CE Credits Online

As a radiologic technologist (RT or “rad tech,” as we’ve informally shortened it here), you have a number of options for earning the continuing education (CE) credits you require for license renewal. If you’ve ever dealt with the hassle of textbook-based courses that require you to mail or fax your post-test and wait for your results, you’ll understand why a growing number of RTs are opting to earn their rad tech CE credits online.

For many RTs, EverLearn online radiology courses have become their first-choice CE solution. There are a number of advantages that set EverLearn apart from other providers of rad tech CE credits. We’ve summarized the top 10 benefits below, and included a few comments from actual RTs who have completed our courses. Read on to learn more…

We aim to make earning CE credits as fast, easy, and stress-free as possible!

EverLearn CE Credits are Easy and Convenient

2. Accepted by ARRT and Approved by ASRT

To ensure the accuracy and relevancy of radiology course content, ARRT requires courses to be approved by a recognized continuing education evaluation mechanism (RCEEM). The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) is one of several RCEEMs authorized to approve Category A and A+ credits. All EverLearn courses are approved for Category A credit by ASRT, so you can be confident that your rad tech CE credits are guaranteed to be accepted by the ARRT.

3. Courses Designed for RTs, by RTs

EverLearn was founded by Lindsay McCorkle, a licensed RT with a master’s degree in education and personal experience with the shortcomings of many existing CE options. She has applied her background in radiologic technology to ensure that EverLearn courses are relevant and valuable for RTs, while leveraging her insights as an educator to create a simple, seamless, and user-friendly CE experience. From ordering courses and reviewing the materials to taking the post-test and earning rad tech CE credits, the entire process is designed to be easy, quick, and hassle-free.

4. Seamless Purchase and Registration Process

With just a few clicks and the completion of several form fields, you can be on your way to earning rad tech CE credits in a matter of minutes. Just add your selected course(s) to the online cart, enter your email address and billing/payment information, and then click a button to complete your order. If you are a first-time customer, you’ll be prompted to create a password and enter your license number(s), state, and birth month to set up your online profile. Once you sign into your EverLearn account, you’ll see all purchased and completed courses displayed in your personal dashboard. (For a step-by-step walkthrough, see our blog post on how to earn radiology CEU credits online with EverLearn.)

5. Instant Access to Online Courses

As soon as you complete your EverLearn order, you’ll have immediate access to your purchased courses. Just log into your online dashboard and click the “Start” button under your chosen title to launch the course. As you progress through the course materials, you can click the “Next Module” button or the hyperlinked module titles along the left side of the page to navigate between sections and continue to the post-test at the end of the course.

6. Launch Content Review From the Post-Test

EverLearn post-tests are multiple-choice exams that reference key topics covered within the course. If you’ve read all of the course materials, you should easily be able to answer the questions—but if you need a little help, you can click the “Content Review” button at any time to open the course materials in a new tab. You can then use the “Find” function (Command + F on on a Mac or Control + F on a PC) to search for the correct answer. Thanks to this feature, most EverLearn customers easily pass the post-test and earn rad tech CE credits on their first attempt.

7. Pause the Post-Test Without Penalty

With EverLearn courses, you don’t have to worry about using up one of your three attempts if you’re not able to complete the post-test in a single sitting. If you’re interrupted or need a break midway through the test, just click the “Leave Exam” button to pause your progress without submitting. When you log back into EverLearn, the post-test will resume where you left off and it will be treated as a continuation of the same attempt.

Completing Your User Profile

After signing into your EverLearn account and launching the online learning system, you’ll be directed to your personal Dashboard, which lists all of your purchased and enrolled courses, your progress/status for each course, and any completed courses. When you’re ready to begin a new course, click the “Start” button.

Learner Dashboard

2. Complete Your Course and Take the Post-Test

When you open a course from your Dashboard, you’ll see a progress bar and interactive table of contents to the left, while the course materials appear to the right. Each course begins with an overview and objectives, followed by the course instructions. All subsequent modules are listed by number and topic, with the post-test at the end. You can click the “Next Module” button at the top right to advance to the next page, or use the navigational links along the left to jump back and forth between modules.

Take time to carefully review the text and images on each page, as you’ll need this information to answer the post-test questions. However, if there’s anything you’ve missed or don’t recall, you can always link back to the course content during the test and search for the answers.

Once you’ve finished the final module and arrived at the Post-Test page, click the “Start Exam” button when you’re ready to begin.

Tips for a Successful EverLearn Radiology CEU Experience

Now that you’ve seen just how easy it is to earn radiology CEU credits online with EverLearn, we hope you’ll try our flexible, convenient, and stress-free courses for yourself! Here are a few final tips to ensure every EverLearn experience is a positive one:

  • Always use the same email account for your EverLearn course purchases. If you have multiple email accounts, be sure to enter the same email address each time you make a new purchase from EverLearn. Otherwise, you’ll end up with multiple profiles in the learning management system and won’t be able to view all of your completed courses and certificates in the same Dashboard.
  • Access EverLearn courses anytime and from any device. EverLearn courses are available 24/7; all you need is an Internet connection and a device with a web browser. While many users find it easiest to review course materials and take post-tests on the larger screen of a laptop or desktop computer, EverLearn courses are mobile optimized for tablets and smartphones—so you can review course materials and earn radiology CEU credits on the go.
  • Pause your post-test without penalty. There’s no need to complete your exam in a single sitting; if you’ve started the post-test but need to pause partway through, just click the “Leave Exam” button. When you return to the course, the post-test will pick up where you left off and the continuation will be treated as the same attempt. But the save-and-resume feature only functions if you use the “Leave Exam” option; so if you have to pause, remember to click the button!
  • Misplaced a certificate or lost track of how many credits you’ve earned? Log into your Dashboard. As a reminder, your EverLearn Dashboard displays all purchased and completed courses. If you ever misplace a certificate, you can log into your account and download or print another copy at any time. You can also see at a glance how many credits each completed course is worth.
Dashboard and Log of Radiology CEU Credits
  • Need a refresher? Relaunch completed courses from your Dashboard. If you ever find yourself in need of information from a past course, just go to the “Completed Courses” page of your Dashboard, find the relevant course, and click the “Relaunch” button to access the course materials. 
  • Help is just a click or phone call away. We’ve designed the EverLearn system to be very intuitive and easy to use, and you can find answers to many frequently asked questions on our website. But if you still need assistance, we’re happy to help. You can call us toll-free at 888-978-5280 or submit your inquiry via our online contact form.

ARRT Continuing Education and License Renewal June 24 2016

ARRT Continuing Education (CE) Requirements Explained for RTs

For renewal of a R.T.s certification and registration, the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) requires R.T.s to report, at minimum, 24 Category A or A+ radiology CE credits at the end of their CE biennium. This requirement became mandatory in 1995 and continues today and assists in ensuring the health care community and public that a R.T. professional is qualified to practice in the profession. All Registered Radiologic Technologists are required to comply with the ARRT continuing education requirements for obtaining radiology CE credits.

What is a R.T.'s Biennium?

An R.T.'s biennium is a two-year time span that coincides with a technologist's birth month. The biennium begins on the first day of an R.T.'s birth month, extending two years, and ends the last day of the month prior to the R.T.'s birth month. The ARRT continuing education requirements make it mandatory that a technologist complete 24 Category A or A+ radiology CE credits in this two-year time frame for certification and registration renewal.

Biennium Example for ARRT Radiology Continuing Education (CE) Credit Requirements

As an example, let's say a new R.T. has a November birthday. This particular person passes the ARRT national registry exam in May of 2016 and obtains initial certification and registration. This newly registered and certified R.T.'s biennium will start on the November 1, 2016 (The R.T.'s next birth month) and continue for two years, ending on October 31, 2018. Between November 1, 2016 and October 31, 2018 this technologist must obtain 24 Category A or A+ radiology CE credits to be eligible for renewal of certification and registration.

If you are looking for your biennium period, it should be printed on your ARRT credential card. Your biennium dates will also appear on your application for renewal of registration and certification. It is important to note that CE credits CAN NOT be carried over from one biennium period to another biennium period per ARRT continuing education guidelines.

How to Renew Your ARRT License

To renew your ARRT license you should be able to do that online. Just head over to the ARRT website.

Click the "LOGIN" icon in the upper right hand corner of the page. If you have login in credentials, then login and you can report your CE and renew online.

If you don't have a login, just click the "REGISTER" link from this page and register with their site to have an online login. Once you do that you should be able to renew online. If you need to contact the ARRT, their phone # is 651-687-0048.

How Does an R.T. Report and Document their Radiology CE Credits to the ARRT?

During the renewal process, a technologist will complete the ARRT's Application for Renewal of Certification and Registration. Every other year, at the end of a technologist's biennium, he or she will be required to document continuing education (CE) on the renewal application CE Report Form by listing the radiology CE credits and activities he or she has completed. The actual CE certificates, proving and documenting that CE credit was completed, should not be submitted with the renewal form. The only time you will be required to submit proof of CE credit via a certificate is if the ARRT selects you for a CE audit.

What Options Does an R.T. Have to Satisfy CE Requirements?

Currently, there are three options a technologist has in fulfilling his or her ARRT continuing education requirements.

Option 1: Earn 24 continuing education (CE) credits that meet the ARRT's criteria and guidelines.

• The 24 CE credits need to be Category A or A+ and must be evaluated by a Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism (RCEEM). All EverLearn courses are Category A and evaluated by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT), which is a recognized RCEEM with the ARRT.

View EverLearn CE Courses

• R.T.s should choose CE topics that are relevant to their practice area. The CE credits do not have to be specific to radiography but must be applicable to radiography or patient care as it relates to radiography.

• Radiology CE credits earned via home study, Internet activities, lectures, and directed reading courses cannot be repeated in the same biennium.

• Applications facility training qualifies as Category A CE credit, but effective January 1, 2011 the ARRT has capped those credits at 8.0 per biennium.

Option 2: Earn certification and registration in a primary discipline not previously certified and registered in. It is important to note though, that this option will no longer provide CE credit for technologists with a CE biennium starting on or after January 1, 2018. Examples of primary certifications or registrations that the ARRT has deemed acceptable for CE credit include Radiography through the ARRT, Nuclear Medicine Technology through the ARRT or NMTCB, Radiation Therapy through the ARRT, Sonography through the ARRT, Magnetic Resonance Imaging through the ARRT, Dosimetry through MDCB, and Diagnostic Medical Sonography , Vascular Technology, or Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography through the ARDMS. Visit the ARRT website to learn more about primary and post-primary certifications and registrations.

Option 3: Earn a post-primary certification and registration not previously held. Again, it is important to note that this option will no longer provide CE credit for technologists with a CE biennium starting on or after January 1, 2018. Examples of post-primary certifications or registrations that the ARRT has deemed acceptable for CE credit include Mammography through the ARRT, Computed Tomography through the ARRT, Magnetic Resonance Imaging through the ARRT, Quality Management through the ARRT, Vascular Sonography through the ARRT, Bone Densitometry through the ARRT, Vascular-Interventional Radiography through the ARRT, Cardiac-Interventional Radiography through the ARRT, Breast Sonography through the ARRT, Radiologist Assistant through the ARRT, Nuclear Cardiology through NMTCB, Positron Emission Tomography through NMTCB, Certified Radiology Administrator sponsored by the AHRA, and the Cardiovascular Credentialing International certification earned on or after January 1, 2016. Visit the ARRT website to learn more about primary and post-primary certifications and registrations.

Will the ARRT Accept Radiology CE Credits Approved in My State?

There are certain states that have laws requiring R.T.s to earn CE credit to uphold a state license in order to practice in the radiography profession. Currently (January 2016), the ARRT accepts CE credits from the following states: Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Oregon, and Texas.

Well, this post covers a lot of what you need to know about ARRT continuing education and R.T. license renewal. Be sure to head over to the ARRT's website for further review of their continuing education (CE) requirements and download a PDF copy for your review.
