How ARRT works With RCEEMS

A recognized continuing education evaluation mechanism (RCEEM) is a radiology-based or medical imaging‐based organization that ARRT has approved to evaluate the content, quality, and integrity of proposed continuing education (CE) activities. Specifically, RCEEMs evaluate an activity’s educational objectives, content relevancy and accuracy, faculty qualifications, and education methods and materials. RCEEMs are authorized to award Category A designation to any proposed CE activity that meets ARRT’s requirements (RCEEM+s can award A+). 


To become a RCEEM with approval privileges for CE activities for ARRT, your organization must be:

  • National in scope
  • Not‐for‐profit
  • Radiology-based or medical imaging-based
  • Willing to evaluate CE activities that any technologist within a given discipline or focus develops
  • Able to demonstrate ARRT’s need for an additional RCEEM (e.g., what issues or concerns are existing RCEEMs not addressing?)
  • Willing to provide a description of the policies and procedures you’ll use to evaluate CE activities
  • Willing to show evidence that you have sufficient resources and experience to provide reliable and valid evaluations of CE activities
  • Willing to adhere to ARRT’s CE Policies and Procedures

We aren't accepting applications for new RCEEMs at this time. We'll update this page when we reopen the application process. 


Below is a list of RCEEMs that ARRT has approved to evaluate CE activities. If you’re a CE sponsor looking for a RCEEM to approve your CE activity, please contact any of these organizations directly.

State Licensing Agencies That Can Approve CE

We also recognize the evaluation processes of the following states, which have CE requirements in their licensing laws: Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Oregon, and Texas. Certain requirements must be met in order for an R.T. to use these activities as credits—learn more in ARRT Continuing Education Requirements
