ARRT Designates AVIR as RCEEM+
The Association of Vascular and Interventional Radiographers (AVIR) has been designated a RCEEM+ by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), making it the fourth Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism Plus (RCEEM+) that is authorized to review and approve CE activities for A+ credit.
* AVIR was originally designated a RCEEM in July 2009.
The A+ designation is awarded to CE activities at the level of and intended for mid-level providers such as Registered Radiologist Assistants (R.R.A.s) or Nuclear Medicine Advanced Associates. Category A+ CE credits are also open to Registered Technologists (R.T.s), who are permitted to report as many A+ CE credits as they wish.
RCEEM and RCEEM+ organizations follow ARRT continuing education policies and assist ARRT during investigation of any inconsistencies regarding CE. Any RCEEM+ designee must first meet the standard requirements for becoming a RCEEM (e.g., national, not-for-profit, radiology based) and have a proven track record as a RCEEM.
