Each of our courses on radiation protection and safety are designed to support radiologic technologists in protecting themselves and their patients from the effects of ionizing radiation through providing clear and relevant content that can be put into practice easily and immediately. Each course is interactive and animated, with the intent of providing rad techs with a valuable and engaging learning experience, in addition to helping them earn the CE credits they need to renew their ARRT® and/or state certifications. All courses are online, self-paced courses, accessible at any time. You only need your device and an internet connection.
In total, you can earn up to 10.5 CE credits in radiation safety with the courses in this library. Below you will find overviews of each course. We invite you to check out the individual course pages for more information about the course objectives, the topics covered, the number of CE credits, and CQR distributions.
Our Radiation Protection in Radiology course aims to educate healthcare staff and patients about the basic physics of radiation, its effects on the body, and the protective measures that must be taken to ensure both patient and staff safety during procedures that involve radiation. It provides training for medical staff on issues of radiation protection for patients and international standards. It also presents standard and international radiation safety applications in radiology, radioscopy, and CT scanning. This course is approved for 8 CE credits.
Our Radiation Protection in the Operating Room course is approved for 1.5 CE credits. This course presents current radiation protection techniques used in the operating room when ionizing radiation is necessary.
Optimizing Pediatric Radiation Dose is a radiation safety course focused on imaging in the pediatric population. This course aims to help radiologic technologists understand how to ensure the safe and appropriate use of digital radiography in children, highlighting fundamental principles and challenges unique to imaging children. This course is approved by the ASRT for 1 CE credit.
