Fla. Admin. Code Ann. R. 64E-3.008 - Continuing Education Requirements

Current through Reg. 47, No. 249; December 28, 2021

(1) Twelve contact hours of continuing education shall be required for renewal during each biennium for persons holding one or more certificates issued pursuant to Part IV Chapter 468, F.S. Credit will not be approved for repeating a course during a biennium. Repeating a course includes taking the same subject matter approved under a different course approval number, or taking the same subject matter in a different format such as live lecture or self study. Self study formats include: online, DVD, CD, videotape, audiotape, or written text.
(2) Failure to comply with the continuing education requirement shall prohibit certification renewal and result in the certificate being placed on expired status. A certificate may be reactivated in accordance with the provisions of Rule 64E-3.010, F.A.C., only upon completion of the continuing education requirement. Hours earned to complete the continuing education requirement to reactivate an expired or inactive certificate may not be used toward completion of the continuing education requirement for the next biennium.
(3) A certificateholder may be awarded twelve contact hours of continuing education for successfully passing a post-primary examination of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, or of the Nuclear Medicine Technologist Certification Board, during the certificateholder's current renewal cycle. To receive credit, the certificateholder must submit to the department proof of passing the post-primary examination, such as a letter from the registry or board which bears the certificateholder's name, the date the examination was taken, and the score. Credit will not be awarded for passing an examination during a previous renewal cycle.
(4) A certificateholder can be awarded contact hours for successfully completing, during the biennium, a continuing education course that is approved by an organization which is recognized by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists as a Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism (RCEEM). The amount of hours awarded the certificateholder shall be equal to the number of hours approved by the RCEEM for that course.
(5) Proof of attendance shall be submitted to the department as outlined in Rule 64E-3.009, Florida Administrative Code.
