Mandatory Education

Mandatory Education

The SAMRT recognizes that advancing technology and increasing responsibility requires technologists to continually update their knowledge and skills. Continuing education ensures professional competence and prevents professional obsolescence. Ten percent (10%) of the membership is audited on an annual basis to provide verification of their credits as declared on their renewal.

Continuing education is mandatory for maintaining membership/licensure with the SAMRT. Each MRT has a duty to attend, track, and report CE activity regardless of employment or registration status. A minimum of 10 Medical Radiation Technology credits per year are required. Dues years, rather than calendar years, will be used for credit accumulation December 1 - November 30.

Members are asked on their annual renewal to declare that they have earned the minimum amount of continuing education credits. If a member doesn’t have sufficient CE credits at the time of renewal, Section 13(2) of the Regulatory Bylaws states that Members who have not completed the continuing education credits required by clause (1)(b) may receive a full practice licence on the condition that they practice only under direct supervision until they complete the required CE credits. Contact the office if you do not have sufficient credits.

How many credits do I need?

A minimum of ten (10) Medical Radiation Technology credits per year. Dues years rather than calendar years will be used for credit accumulation: December 1 - November 30. 

How do I keep track of my CE credits?

Personal continuing education forms may be obtained from the SAMRT website. Ensure that all credits documented are in compliance with the SAMRT Continuing Education Guidelines & Audit Expectations.

How do I submit my credits?

Members are asked on their annual renewal to declare that they have earned the minimum amount of continuing education credits. 10% of the membership is audited on an annual basis to provide verification of their credits as declared on the renewal. It is fraudulent to make a false declaration.
