South Dakota Radiology Technician Continuing Education
In South Dakota, radiology technicians are required to meet the continuing education requirement as established by the ARRT of 24 hours every two years. The cycle runs from the first day of the month in which you were born to the last day of this month two years later. Hours must be completed from either Category A or Category A+. Regardless of which category the hours are from, they must all be approved by the Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism (RCEEM) in order to count towards this requirement. Examples of acceptable options include but are not limited to the following: attendance at or presentation of a lecture, completion of academic courses related to radiologic science, online learning courses, journal readings, publication in a radiologic science textbook or peer-reviewed journal, and home study courses. Additionally, advanced certification and/or instruction of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) (Advanced Cardiac Life Support or Pediatric Advanced Life Support) by the American Red Cross, the American Heart Association, or the American Safety and Health Institute can be used towards continuing education credit. Individuals not in compliance with this requirement will be placed on probation and must be reinstated in order to continue practicing. Random audits are performed during each reporting period so it is important to maintain accurate records of all completed activity.
