The great state of Texas has it's own licensing requirements for radiologic technologists, and the rules are fairly complicated so please read this if you have any doubts. Texas has unique requirements that are not the same as the ARRT, so if you also have an ARRT license, you'll want to try and get courses that will meet both requirements simultaneously and kill two birds with one stone.
Also, to make it interesting, Texas has no fewer then 5 levels of certification to take x-rays, and your CE requirements will vary depending on which license you have.
It's ok to get more then you need, but hopefully this article can save you time and money by helping you get the right credits.
If you already know what you need, then you can get started now and get your credits today.
Recent ChangesThe Texas department of State Health Services is no longer administering the radiologic technologist licensing programs. Renewals are now under the authority of the Texas Medical Board. They have updated their website so most information is online now.
*** IMPORTANT ***
The TMB has sent out notice that they were going to increase the number of live instruction hours required. Historically, this has been 3 hours. A notice recently sent out by email states that this is 12 hours. However on their website (http://www.tmb.state.tx.us/page/resources-ce-for-GMRT) as of 5-23-2017, they have posted the following statement.
Concerns have been raised regarding new requirements related to the number of continuing education hours that must be formal, instructor-led courses designated for Category A or A-plus credits of continuing education by an organization recognized by ARRT. The concerns will be reviewed by the Texas Board of Medical Radiologic Technology for further consideration and a possible updates to those requirements. During that period of review, such requirements will not be enforced. The recent numerical increases to LMRT and NCT continuing education hours required will be enforced moving forward, however the previous requirements for number of instructor lead courses will be acceptable until that review is completed.
The following requirements will remain in place:
About the various licenses
As mentioned, there are 3 levels of certification not including practitioners (MD, DO, DC, DPM, RN, PA) who's requirements are not the same as a professional radiologic technologist and will get CE credits through their own governing bodies.
- General Medical Radiologic Technologist (MRT),
- Limited Medical Radiologic Technologist (LMRT)
- Non-Certified Technician (NCT)
Live course requirement
No matter which online CE credits provider you choose, you will still need to supplement those credits with 3 hours of live courses, unless you have the NCT license.
This is because Texas requires all MRTs and LMRTs to have at least 3 hours of "instructor-directed activities." Basically this means live "butt in classroom" instruction. This could, however be a webinar, but most of the time it's a seminar or class. Whatever it is, it has to be in real time with a live instructor. NCTs do not have this requirement.
We have not had an overwhelming demand to provide these webinars. If we get enough requests this is certainly something we could do. Contact us and let us know you are interested and if we get enough demand, we will look into doing it.
The regulations may accommodate CPR and ACLS certification renewal as being included for 3 live course credits. (see §140.511 ) Which, chances are, you might be doing anyway. Just be sure and save the documentation for the classes. However keep in mind that these courses DO NOT count for ARRT. Aside from that you can check with the Texas Society of Radiologic Technologists for events, or look online for something near you. Sometimes there are opportunities if you are with a facility that is purchasing equipment, check with them to see if you can sit in on training since often those are eligible for CE credits.
Directly related vs indirectly related
Texas makes a distinction between "directly related" subjects and "indirectly related" subjects, and you will need at least half or more of your credits to be of "directly related" subjects. All of our courses, with the exception of our Ethics course, are directly related. Directly related basically means related to exposing human patients to radiation and clinical diagnostic radiography. They do allow for up to half the credits to be on other subjects that they still consider "indirectly related", these are not particularly in the realm of radiation. See §140.511 for more information on this.
CE for MRT
If you are a General MRT, chances are you are also licensed through ARRT. Either way, our "directly related" 24 credit course "Radiography of the Upper Extremities" should be a convenient and interesting option for you. If you are licensed with ARRT, you can send this in and be done with ARRT. The only caveat is that the ARRT does not allow repeat submissions, so if you submitted this same course to ARRT within the past 4 years, you will need something different to them this time. As for TX, you use this to claim 21 of the credits, however, as with all online credits, you will need to find the other 3 credits of "instructor-directed activities." (see above).
If you are an MCT performing mammography, you are probably also licensed with ARRT and subject to MQSA regulations. Although the state itself does not have specific requirements for mammographers, the ARRT requires that each mammographer must earn 10 of the 24 Approved CE credits in mammography. Also the MQSA requires 15 credits every 3 years. We have designed courses guaranteed to meet the needs of Mammographers. See our mammography courses and get your credits today.
CE for LMRT
The state of TX only requires 12 credits every 2 years for LMRTs. If you have no other registries to worry about then that's all you need. You can take the same course year after year, but the subject matter must be "directly related" for at least half your units. It doesn't matter which specialties you have under this certification, the requirements do not change. The "directly related" course "Understanding Ionizing Radiation" will work for you, but remember to only claim 9 you will still need your 3 live credits. (see above)
CE FOR NCT
The state of TX only requires 6 credits every 2 years for NCTs. There is no live course requirement, but at least 3 of the credits need to be "directly related" (see above). All of our courses below 6 credits are "directly related" so feel free to choose whatever combination fills your needs.
