This course is designed to meet the California Department of Public Health Radiologic Health Branch new 2013 CE licensure renewal rules for you, the Certified Radiologic Technologists (CRTs). The new rules state that four of the 24 required hours obtained must be about digital radiography within the two years immediately preceding the expiration of your permit. CRT’s and PA’s with a fluoroscopic permit are also required to obtain four hours of radiation safety for the clinical uses of fluoroscopy. Join us in this 8 hour day that covers both new CE requirements!
