There is more to being a professional today than simply doing your job to the best of your ability. You need to be ready and able to keep up with the changes in the industry which include the technological advances that continue driving it forward. These advances along with shifts in the healthcare system will easily demand that professionals pursue continuing education and keep current with the latest developments. This allows you to remain competent and most importantly, allows you to remain employed.
Continuing Education Since 1995
ARRT continuing education has been a requirement since 1995, with technologists’ CE records being audited in 1997. Those who are audited will need to provide immediate proof that they have earned 24 CE credits within the allotted time if they wish to continue practicing. Naturally, this is a potentially hazardous profession and with that being the case patients and hospital administrators want only the best operating their equipment.
What is a Continuing Education?
The system will define ARRT continuing education as one that is: “planned, organized and administered to enhance the knowledge and skills underlying the professional performance that the technologist uses to provide services to patients, the public or the medical profession. To qualify as a CE activity, it must provide sufficient depth and scope of a subject area.”
To that end, it is crucial that you receive your continuing education from a reliable source and one that is approved by your organization. By keeping your skills sharp, and by ensuring that you continue being vigilant, you will not only keep your job; but you will also continue to be the best at what you do.

A fire broke out at a record release party in Oakland, California late on Friday night. Nine were confirmed dead the following morning with the death toll rising to 24 the next day.
The warehouse, known as Ghost Ship, was hosting a party for the release of the newest album by Joel “Golden Donna” Shanahan. It is in Oakland’s Fruitvale neighborhood, a mix of commercial and residential buildings nestled together. The structure is one block away from Fire Station No. 13 and at least 55 firefighters spent four hours containing and stopping the fire which began at approximately 11:30 p.m.
Firefighters and police cordoned off the block to spectators. The two-story, mixed-use structure also housed the artist collective Satya Yuga who hosted the show and is being searched by firefighters. Out of approximately 50 attendees, at least 25 were declared missing. Shanahan was among the survivors.
Efforts to rescue partygoers were compounded by the roof caving in during the inferno as well as the stacks of furniture, art pieces, and supplies which turned into obstacles for first responders.
Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf:
The structure is owned by Chor N. Ng, who is also the proprietor of several other buildings in the East Bay. On November 13 Ng was cited by the city for having stacks of garbage in and around the warehouse. Most fatalities were reported to have occurred in the upstairs portion of the building where escape was hampered by unstable stairs and miscellaneous art pieces lying in the way. The building lacked any smoke detectors and sprinklers; fire extinguishers were found outside of the premises.
