Curium | Possibly Free | 24 CEs Available

Curium has 24.0 online credits related to nuclear medicine, 7.5 about CT & 4.5 related to Ultrasound. Credits are $10/hr. This is the lowest price of all the vendors reviewed here.

Plus, you may be able to get them all for FREE.

  • Call your unit dose radiopharmacy– they may have a code from Curium which will enable you to get everything for free.
  • Or call Curium at at 1-888-744-1414

All courses are approved by AHRA, which means both ARRT & NMTBC will accept them.

All credits are specifically approved by Florida’s Department of Health, Bureau of Radiation Control.

Warning:

Curium uses a company called Echelon to deliver it’s CEs. So does the Philips Online Learning Center (below). Many of the Echelon courses that these two vendors offer are the same exact content.

Be careful with this type of thing especially with Curium & Phillips. This can happen with other CE vendors as well.

If the courses look the same– the Titles are very similar, etc., then we recommend you DON’T take both courses.

They probably are the same–  ESPECIALLY with Curium & Philips.  We recommend Curium over Philips anyways, it’s a slightly better user experience & credits are $10/hr versus $20 through Philips.

Curium Courses Are in Video Format:

The courses are comprised of videos, with mini-quizzes throughout the courses. There are also written transcripts of the presentations available for review.

  • A passing score is 80% or above, & you have 3 attempts to pass the test.
  • The quality of the presentations is very good. You will learn a lot more per credit hour than you would at an average dinner hosted by a pharmaceutical company or radiopharmacy.
  • It will probably will take you about a full hour to go through all the material and take the test to earn a credit hour.
  • However, there’s a tip in our in depth instructions which can greatly speed things up for you.

The Ultimate Guide to Online Nuclear Medicine Continuing Education for CNMTs

BE READY when your CEs come due.

Get the Ultimate Guide + 9 Tutorials with step-by-step instructions on how to get your CEs from each online source.

SNMMI | 4 Free CEs | Additional CEs $15 – $32

SNMMI has 4 CE activities, 1 hour of credit each, which non-members can get VOICE credit for.  You will have to sign up for an SNMMI website account to get these, but you don’t have to join the SNMMI.

If you DO join, a Technologist membership costs $108/year + regional chapter dues.  The Pacific Southwest chapter, for example is $7/year.  So figure about $115/year to join SNMMI. When you join, you get access to about 113 credit hours of CE for free.

If you did need 24 hours and you paid $108 to join, that would work out to $4.50/hour, which would be a very good deal.

SNMMI Courses Are Mostly Journal Articles or Webinar Replays:

You can read PDFs of articles from the Journal of Nuclear Medicine or the Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology.  Or, you can watch a replay of a webinar.  The post-tests are generally comprised of about 10 questions.

The level of difficulty for the tests is fairly high.

However, there are some tips in our How to Use the SNMMI CE Website Tutorial which can speed things up a bit for you.

ASNC | 6 Free CEs for Members

ASNC offers 6 CE credits online for Technologists.  They are free for members, $60/each for non-members.

ASNC membership for Technologists costs $80/year. So, if you paid $80 for no other reason than the CE’s, you’d be paying for 6 credits @ $13.33/credit hour.

So, it might be worth joining ASNC if you want to anyways & you’re up for some challenging CE’s. You get the Journal of Nuclear Cardiology & discounts on meetings thrown in.

Valid for Physicians’ CME Requirements

These 6 courses are also valid for your Interpreting Physicians to take as part of their IAC Nuclear/PET (“ICANL”) CME requirements. The courses are approved for 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits each.

Plus there are many more activities available for physicians.

Physician membership costs $295.

Click the blue toggle below to see the 6 hours available as of February 12, 2018:

Journal of Nuclear Cardiology (JNC) Articles with Post-Tests

ASNC’s continuing education credits will force you to put on your thinking cap and concentrate.

The Journal of Nuclear Cardiology is not light reading if you don’t tend to be scholarly. Many articles will have unfamiliar vocabulary terms related to cardiac catherization, CT, MRI & other physician-level concepts.

However, if you’re into nuclear cardiology, and you’re an ASNC member, or you want to be a member, go for it– you might learn something useful.

BC Technical | 1 Free Webinar per Month

BC Technical conducts a once-a-month online webinars good 1 or 1.5 credit hours, which counts towards our ARRT(N) and NMTCB CE requirements.

You can sign up to be notified when new webinars happen, and you can take recorded webinars on their website between the time that the webinars happen & the end of the month.

If you just kept up with BC Technical’s CEs every month, that alone would give you 24 hours at the end of your CE cycle.

  • However, not all of their webinars are related to nuclear medicine.

You must score at least 80% correct to pass the tests.  You won’t get your grade until the day after you submit your answers- and you may have forgotten a lot of the content by then. So be sure to answer the questions correctly the first time.

If you do pass, you’ll get your CE certificate at the end of the month.  They will email it to you.  This certificate is your proof that you’ve earned credit, so file the PDF & print it up and file it somewhere you’ll remember.

  • You don’t get your CE Certificate immediately
  • If you’re in a big hurry for credits, this won’t help you much
  • But, these webinars can be a good way of consistently accumulating CEs.

Jubilant DraxImage | 1 Free CE

Jubilant DraxImage’s website offers only 1 credit, it’s a VOICE credit and it’s free.

You watch a YouTube video titled “Optimized Use of V/Q in the Modern Era”, then take a 10 question test.  It’s pretty interesting.

What you should know if you’re going to do this online CE activity:

  • You don’t get any confirmation that they received your answers … nothing
  • Scoring of the test is done manually
  • You don’t hear anything for about a month
  • I happened to pass the test, so I received an email about a month later with my VOICE certificate
  • If you don’t pass, however, it’s unlikely you’re going to remember all the course content
  • So make sure your answers are right the first time
  • The test is not too difficult & the video is right there for you

Omnipath | $15/CE

Cardinal’s credits are $15 each, or you can buy a 12 credit bundle for $10.75/hour or a 24 credit bundle for $7.37/hour.

Omnipath Courses Are Slides with Audio Narration

The course I took was comprised of 29 slides, then a 10 question post test at the end.   The course was a little dated, then again, nothing has changed since it was created.  It worked fine.

On the second slide of every course, you can download a searchable PDF of the course material.  You can also go to previous slides during the test.

The level of difficulty of the material & the tests is not too high.

NucMedTutorials.com | $13 – $20/CE

Overview

NucMedTutorials.com offers 53 hours of VOICE approved nuclear medicine-related Continuing Education for CNMTs.

Notably, all these same courses are also approved as CMEs for physicians, radiation physicists, nuclear pharmacists & nuclear pharmacy technicians.

So, if you’re a Technical Director of an IAC Accredited nuclear lab & you’re looking for nuclear medicine-related CMEs for your Cardiologists, these courses would do the trick.

  • 1 credit courses are $20
  • 2 credit courses are $30 ($15/CE)
  • 3 credit courses are $40 ($13.33/CE)

Here’s a link detailing the California categories the courses qualify for. They also have a special promotion for California CNMTs.

The site has a slightly low tech feel, but it works fine.

  1. You choose a course, download & read the PDF tutorial.
  2. Then you create an account on the testing site and take the test there. You must score 80% and you get 3 attempts.
  3. Then you go back to the main site to checkout & pay by PayPal or Credit Card.

Dr. Karesh recommends you email him when you’re done taking all your courses. He’ll email you your certificates within 24 hours & will also snail mail you a paper copy.

Again, maybe a little low-tech, but the system works fine & he is dependable. (I’ve taken courses several times from him)

Philips Online Learning Center | $20/CE

Philips offers 32 credit hours worth of ASRT-approved Nuclear Medicine Continuing Education.

Credit hours are $20 each, which makes them a little on the pricey side.

Warning:

Philips uses a company called Echelon to deliver it’s CEs. So does Curium. Many of the Echelon courses that these two vendors offer are the same exact content.

  • Specifically, the Curium course I took called NMT/RT Part 1: Anatomy & Physiology – Cardiovascular, was the exact same course as a Philips course I took called Anatomy and Physiology Review for NMT.
  • These identical courses are approved by different CE mechanisms, Curium by AHRA, Philips by ASRT so the ARRT & NMTCB would possibly not count them as being the same course… but they might.
  • Be careful with this , especially with Curium & Phillips. This can happen with other CE vendors as well.
  • If the courses look the same- the Titles are very similar, etc., then we recommend you DON’T take both courses.  They probably are the same-  ESPECIALLY with Curium & Philips.
  • We recommend Curium over Philips anyways, it’s a slightly better user experience & credits are $10/hr versus $20 through Philips.

Internationally Recognized & Tablet-Friendly:

On the plus side, if you don’t live in the US, many of Philips’ courses are explictly approved by the ISSRT, an international CE approval mechanism.

Also, some of their courses are tablet-friendly.  Read our How to Use the Philips Online Learning Center tutorial for more information.

Online Learning Center Courses Are in Video Format:

The courses are comprised of videos, with mini-quizzes throughout the courses. There are also written transcripts of the presentations available for review.

A passing score is 80% or above, & you have 3 attempts to pass the test.

The quality of the presentations is very high. You will learn a lot more per credit hour than you would at an average dinner hosted by a pharmaceutical company or radiopharmacy.

It will probably will take you about a full hour to go through all the material and take the test to earn a credit hour.

However, there’s a tip in our How to Navigate the Philips Online Learning Center tutorial which can greatly speed things up for you.

ASRT | $20 / CE

ASRT is a leading professional association for the medical imaging and radiation therapy community offering ARRT-accepted continuing education credits, advocacy, research, and career and salary information for radiologic technology professionals.

They do not focus much on nuclear medicine– more so on the other imaging modalties.

Many of the other CE providers get their CE approval through ASRT.

If you join the ASRT for $125/year you get instant access to 15 Directed Reading CEs for free,

However, they only have 1 Directed Reading CE that is relevant to nuclear medicine, so I wouldn’t join the ASRT for the CE credits.

The 1 Directed Reading CE is essentially a Journal Article with a test afterwards; it’s about Molecular Breast Imaging which is an important, relatively new topic that many people may be interested in.  It costs $20.

They do offer 45.5 CE credits related to nuclear medicine.  Those credits are in the form of chapters from a Nuclear Medicine textbook titled “Essentials of Nuclear Medicine Imaging”, by Drs. Fred A Mettler and Milton J Guiberteau.

Chapters are worth between 1.5 – 6.5 CE hours each.  The cost is $20/CE hour.

  • Many CNMTs may remember that book from their school days; it’s highly technical & clinical.
  • ASRT CE courses are good if you like scholarly, highly technical & clinically advanced subject matter.
  • If you’re just looking to get some quick credits, I wouldn’t recommend them.

NMTCB & ARRT Requirements for CNMTs

NMTCB Continuing Education Requirements

You need 24 CE credits every 2 years (“biennium”) if you are a Certified Nuclear Medicine Technologist (CNMT) registered through the NMTCB. That works out to 1 credit/month.

Click the toggles below to learn about how to satisfy the NMTCB’s CE requirements:

NMTCB Continuing Education Requirements:

Your biennium begins the first day of your birth month. Depending on when you were first certified, that may be an odd or even year. You can find out when your CE biennium is by clicking here. (You must have your certification number, which is on your wallet card & certificate.)

Those credits must be related to Nuclear Medicine.

You can repeat the exact same CE course for different bienniums.  For example, you can take a course now, then the same exact course in your next 2-year CE cycle.

You can’t do the same CE course twice in the same biennium (even if it offered through different vendors).

  • As we’ll see, sometimes different vendors will offer the exact same course material.
  • You can’t take that same course from different vendors & get double credit.
  • If 2 courses from different CE vendors LOOK the same, they probably ARE the same- we don’t recommend you take both.
  • This is especially true of Curium & Philips– many of their courses are the same.

Additional NMTCB Certifications:

  • If you have a CT specialty certification from the NMTCB, then you need 12 additional CE credits, specific to CT, in addition to your 24 CE requirement.
  • However, if you have a PET or NCT certification with NMTCB, that does not impose any additional CE requirements on you.

The NMTCB recognizes CE Credits from different “Approval Mechanisms”, in other words, organizations like ASRT, SNMMI VOICE, AHRA, etc., that put their stamp of approval on a CE activity or course.

Click here to see all NMTCB recognized CE approval organizations

Click here for FAQ about NMTCB CE Requirements

Alternative Ways of Meeting NMTCB Requirements:
  • Active duty military deployed overseas are exempt from CE requirements
  • Successful completion of any post-primary exam recognized by NMTCB, ARRT, ARDMS or AHRA are considered the equivalent of 24 CE hours
  • College level courses related to Radiological Health Sciences, Patient Care & Nuclear Medicine Technology will be counted
    • Up to 16 hours/semester
  • Also Business, Technology or Education courses related to healthcare will be considered
    • Up to 16 hours/semester
  • ACLS or PALS can count for up to 6 hours

Click here to learn more about all of the above options

ARRT Continuing Education Requirements

Just like the NMTCB, you need 24 CE credits every 2 years (“biennium”) if you are a Nuclear Medicine Technologist RT(N) registered through the ARRT.

Click the toggles below to learn more about the ARRT’s CE requirements:

ARRT Continuing Education Requirements:

Your CE biennium begins the first day of your birth month.

Find out your exact biennium here   (Just enter your first & last name in the search box)

ARRT states that:

  • R.T.s should select CE topics that are related to their area of practice and that will maintain their competence and prevent professional obsolescence.
  • R.R.A.s and R.T.(S)s have mandatory requirements regarding the types of CE topics they must select (see Sections 18 or 19 respectively). See Section 20 for restrictions on CE activities and reporting.

So there is NO strict requirement that credits must be related to nuclear medicine for ARRT(N)s.

Just like the NMTCB, you can’t do the same CE activity twice in the same biennium (even if it offered through different vendors). But, you can repeat the same activity for a subsequent biennium.

All the courses in this Guide are ARRT Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanisms.

Click here to see the ARRT Recognized CE approval organizations (Look at the organizations listed in Section 21)

Alternative Ways of Meeting ARRT Requirements:
  • For a limited time only: If you become certified and registered in an additional primary or post-primary disciple, that can count for all of your CE requirements for that biennium.
    • But, for CE bienniums beginning on or after January 1, 2018, additional certifications will NOT count towards your CE requirement.
  • Advanced Level CPR: ACLS or PALS certification will be awarded a maximum of six CE credits.
    • A valid advanced CPR card from the Red Cross, the American Heart Association, or the American Safety & Health Institute is acceptable documentation for a CE audit.
  • Applications Training: The maximum number of CE credits for applications facility training will be capped at 8.0 Category A credits per biennium.
  • Tumor Boards: A maximum of 12 CE credits per biennium may be claimed for tumor boards

IAC Nuclear/PET (“ICANL”) Requirements

If you’re a CNMT working in an IAC Nuclear/PET accredited lab (whether you’re the Technical Director or you’re Technical Staff.):

“You must obtain at least 15 hours of accredited CE relevant to nuclear medicine, every three years. All CE hours must be approved CE (i.e., VOICE, ASRT, ACE, AMA Category I).

  • “Relevant” to nuclear medicine includes content that is directly related to the performance or interpretation of nuclear cardiology, general nuclear medicine, PET or interventions used during nuclear testing (such as stress testing) or content that is directly related to one of the IAC Nuclear/PET Standards.
  • This may include no more than five credits of MR and/or CT CME.
  • This does not include education primarily concerning echocardiography/ultrasound, cardiac catheterization, general medicine or the treatment of diseases unless directly related to the interpretation of nuclear imaging or radionuclide therapies.”

Go to IAC Nuclear/PET Requirements

ACR Requirements

If you’re a CNMT working in an ACR accredited lab:

Your 24 CE’s every two years must: “include credits pertinent to the technologist’s ACR accredited clinical practice.”

Go to ACR Requirements

State Requirements

Some states, most notably Florida and California, have additional CE requirements beyond the ARRT/NMTCB. This guide does not fully address all of those requirements; you will need to verify state requirements on your own.

However, we can give you some state information:

  • Florida: The section about Curium’s does contain 22.5 CE hours that are specifically accepted by Florida.
  • California: The sections about Cardinal/Omnipath & NucMedTutorials.com have many credits that are specifically accepted by California.
  • (SNMMI) VOICE credits are typically the most widely accepted CE credits

Jim has been the Technical Director of an IAC Nuclear/PET nuclear cardiology lab for the last 11 years.

He originally developed the NucReporter to keep his own lab's reports 100% ICANL compliant. But his interpreting physicians liked it so much, they encouraged him to commercialize it.

Realizing that the NucReporter could make other Cardiologists' & CNMTs' lives a LOT BETTER, he decided to perfect it & sell it.

Jim's vision is a world where Cardiologists breeze through reports & go home earlier, nobody worries about ICANL report compliance or report deficiencies, and all SPECT/PET MPI reports are complete, concise & crystal-clear.
