Mississippi Radiology Technician Continuing Education
As with most healthcare professions, radiology technicians are required to complete continuing education hours in order to satisfy their registration and/or licensure requirements. In the state of Mississippi, the requirement is 24 hours every two years. This allows the registration as overseen by the ARRT to remain in good standing as well as Mississippi state licensure. As of January 1, 2008, all of these hours must come from Category A (activities as approved by a Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism (RCEEM) in order to count towards continuing education. Non-RCEEM activities can be attended but they will not count towards the continuing education hour requirement. Examples of Category A activities include publication in a radiologic science textbook or peer-reviewed journal, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) certification or instruction of in the form of Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) or Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) through the American Red Cross, American Heart Association, or the American Safety and Health Institute, and successful completion of an approved academic course (must be from an area such as health and medical science, physical science, psychology, sociology, biologic or radiologic sciences). Licensure renewals submitted online through the MSDH website will be randomly selected for continuing education audits; those submitted via mail will need to include documentation of all continuing educations activities completed.
