CE or Professional Development
This section is dedicated to continuing education material for the SAMRT. Questions can be directed to the SAMRT office by clicking here
Mandatory Continuing Education
The SAMRT recognizes that advancing technology and increasing responsibility requires technologists to continually update their knowledge and skills. Continuing education ensures professional competence and prevents professional obsolescence.
Continuing education is mandatory for maintaining membership/licensure with the SAMRT. Each MRT has a duty to attend, track, and report CE activity regardless of employment or registration status.
How many credits do I need?
A minimum of 10 Medical Radiation Technology credits per year. Dues years rather than calendar years will be used for credit accumulation December 1 - November 30.
How do I keep track of my CE credits?
Personal continuing education forms may be obtained from the SAMRT website. Ensure that all credits documented are in compliance with the SAMRT Continuing Education Guidelines & Audit Expectations.
How do I submit my credits?
Members are asked on their annual renewal to declare that they have earned the minimum amount of continuing education credits. 10% of the membership is audited on an annual basis to provide verification of their credits as declared on the renewal.
