As of 1 January 2006 the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) has made a change in CE approval regarding directed readings, post-tests and Category A CE credit.

Self-learning activities such as directed readings and home studies that are approved after 1 January 2006 will continue to be evaluated on the content (depth, scope, and relevancy). CE credits will be awarded based on the time spent to complete the learning portion of the activity. Since the primary purpose of the post-tests for ARRT is verification of participation, they are not considered a learning activity. Time spent completing post-tests will no longer be awarded CE credit.

The credits awarded to previously approved CE activities being renewed after 1 January 2006, must be adjusted to meet the new 2006 ARRT requirements. The SMRT RCEEM Committee is working toward compliance with the new ARRT CE requirements by updating the amount of CE credits awarded.

All of the SMRT Educational Seminars Home Studies are listed with their current Category A CE credit amounts and their annual renewal dates. SMRT members will have up until the current annual renewal date as listed below to earn CE credits by completing the post test quiz and sending it to the SMRT office prior to the annual renewal date. To assist members in receiving the maximum CE credits from past home studies, we have also listed the pending CE credits that members will receive after the renewal date. Please check the SMRT Web site for updates on the new 2006 CE credit renewal amounts. All past issues of the home studies will be renewed for two years for Category A CE credit.
