SMRT HOME STUDY PROGRAM

Updated 20 November 2015

 
IMPORTANT HOME STUDY CONTINUING EDUCATION INFORMATION...please click here!

Thank you, Invivo Corporation, for your generous support of the SMRT Home Study Program!

 
The SMRT Home Study Program, "SMRT Educational Seminars," has been developed for technologists at all stages of their professional careers, working on all types of equipment, and in varying work environments. Additionally, you will be able to earn Category A Continuing Education Credits with every home study. It makes sense to earn your credits in areas that are pertinent to your specialized field. "SMRT Educational Seminars" allows you to earn credits towards ARRT requirements without leaving your home or office. This is an exclusive benefit available only to SMRT Basic Technologist members, click here for Membership Information; ISMRM members may now add a subscription to their current membership dues.
 
Purchase Back Issues: SMRT Basic Technologist Members and ISMRM members may purchase back issues of SMRT Educational Seminars*. The cost for each issue is currently US$25.00. Simply choose the back issue(s) you wish to order, select Order here or from the index below, enter your SMRT/ISMRM login information, print out and complete the order form, and mail or fax it with payment to the Society's office:
