Hawaii Radiology Rech Continuing Education
Continuing education units or hours are overseen primarily by the ARRT, which requires twenty-four hours every two years. This requirement must be met to keep the radiologic technologist in good standing with the ARRT as well as in good standing in the state of Hawaii when licensure renewal is due (every two years). Individuals can attend a variety of courses and complete many types of activities, but they must all be approved by a Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism (RCEEM) in order to count as hours towards the continuing education requirement. The ARRT website has more specific detailed explanations of the types of events that are offered and approved, but they include attendance and presentations at professional seminars, publications in radiologic technology textbooks and peer-reviewed journals, and completion of advanced certifications and training related to the field.
