ARRT to End Partial CE Credit
Starting Jan. 1, 2022, ARRT will change a policy concerning continuing education (CE) activities. It applies to events such as in-person talks and webinars, at which attendance rather than a test afterward verifies completion.
After the change, you’ll receive credit only if you attend all of an approved CE activity. In the past, we required CE sponsors to award only partial credit for learners who attended part of a CE activity. In the future, people who miss part of a CE activity will receive no credit.
“ARRT wants R.T.s to have the opportunity to learn all the material being presented, so it’s important that they attend full CE activities,” says J.J. Powell, Director of Education Requirements.
When a CE approver evaluates a CE activity, it determines how much credit to award for the full content. If a CE activity doesn’t run for the allotted time—but the presenter delivers all content—the CE sponsor will award full credit for the activity and report the time shortage to the RCEEM or SLA that approved the activity. If ARRT identifies recurring trends in which a CE sponsor’s activities don’t meet ARRT requirements, we’ll investigate the issues.
