A Scope of Practice is terminology that defines the procedures, actions, and processes that are permitted for a licensed/certified individual. The scope of practice is limited to that which the law allows for specific education, experience, and competency. Each jurisdiction may have laws, licensing bodies, and regulations that describe requirements for education and training, and define scope of practice. Likewise, individual institutions may also have specific bylaws that define scope of practice in the absence of the above.

The PET/CT Training Institute does not define a scope of practice or practice standards for nuclear medicine technologists or PET Technologist. The Scope of Practice or Practice Standards for Technologists is established by the professional societies that represent nuclear medicine technologists and the nuclear medicine technologist communities.

Please note that these courses are not intended to modify or alter existing tort law; rather they should serve as concise outlines of nuclear medicine technology skills and responsibilities. Also, note that state regulations and institutional bylaws may take precedence over the duties outlined in these documents.

The 2021 Radiation Safety certification examination will be offered August 12 - August 14, 2021.  The deadline to meet eligibility for this examination is July 1st. 



The NMTCB(RS) credential is intended to display a technologist's expertise in all aspects of RAM and CT radiation safety issues, while also verifying their competency in fluoroscopy, X-ray, and MRI safety matters.

This credential helps medical imaging supervisors, administrators, and RSOs identify certified individuals who have demonstrated their knowledge in regulatory safety issues so that hospitals and other medical radiological users can have a solid core of personnel on site who are available and properly trained. The NMTCB(RS) certification is not intended to fulfill the NRC's required criteria for Radiation Safety Officers.

Successful completion of the NMTCB(RS) exam will be recognized by the NMTCB as the equivalent of 24 hours of Continuing Education.

Radiation Safety Application Checklist:

Submit your application and you will be directed to a secure server where your payment can be made. All applications will need a payment submitted in order to be processed.

Provide a letter of attestation from your supervisor or the RSO stating you have performed tasks directly associated with radiation safety over a minimum of one calendar year period. An applicant who can display that they are currently on or have been listed as an RSO or Associate RSO on an RAM license may submit a copy of the license in lieu of an attestation form.

Starting January 1, 2022current specialty certificants who want to recertify for an additional seven years will be required to (1) successfully pass the specialty examination OR (2) display 42 hours of acceptable specialty-specific continuing education obtained during the seven year period (the equivalent of 6 CEs per year of certification).


Starting January 1, 2022, anyone with expired specialty credentials will only be able to regain the credential by successfully passing the specialty exam again.  

How do I apply under the limited time offer?  

Step One: Request an Alternate Specialty Recertification Application for either an expired or current specialty credential by emailing The application for this limited time opportunity is not available online and must be requested via email.

The NMTCB Board of Directors has approved an immediate update to the NMTCB Continuing Competence Policy. Effective immediately, NMTCB(CT) certificants will be allowed to use their Computed Tomography continuing education credits towards their entry level CNMT continuing education requirements.

Previously, NMTCB(CT) certificants were required to obtain a total of 12 hours of CE specific to CT content in each two year cycle, in addition to any hours of CE that were required to maintain their primary certification. Going forward, the CT specific CEs an NMTCB(CT) certificant obtains will be allowed to count towards their entry level nuclear medicine CNMT CE requirements.

Continuing competence is defined as the ability to provide service at specified levels of knowledge and skill, not only at the time of initial certification, but through an individual’s professional career. Continuing competence of health care professionals is of the utmost importance to the public, employers, health care providers, regulatory bodies, and professional associations. NMTCB certifications display to the public that a technologist who is credentialed by NMTCB has been assessed in terms of their competence to practice in the profession denoted by the credential they hold.


Nuclear Medicine Technologists (CNMT)
CNMT certificants are required to obtain the equivalent of one (1) hour of CE for each month of their CE cycle. (i.e. 24 credits per two year cycle.)Credits must be obtained from NMTCB approved CE organizations.
Successful completion of an additional post-primary or specialty exam, or obtaining a grade of C or better in certain academic courses may also count towards the 24 hour requirement.

Computed Tomography Technologists (NMTCB(CT))
NMTCB(CT) certificants must renew their CT credential annually and maintain their primary credential. An NMTCB(CT) certificant is required to obtain a total of 12 hours of continuing education specific to CT topics in each 2 year CE cycle.
** CT specific CE hours may also count towards a CNMT's continuing education requirements as well.

Nuclear Cardiology Technologists (NCT)
An NCT specialty certificant must renew their specialty credential annually and maintain their primary nuclear credential as well. NCT certification is valid for up to 7 years. Specialty certificants who want to recertify for an additional 7 years may either (1) successfully pass the specialty examination again OR (2) display 42 hours of acceptable specialty-specific continuing education (the equivalent of 6 hours per year of certification).

Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
An PET specialty certificant must renew their specialty credential annually and maintain their primary credential as well. PET certification is valid for up to 7 years. Specialty certificants who want to recertify for an additional 7 years may either (1) successfully pass the specialty examination again OR (2) display 42 hours of acceptable specialty-specific continuing education (the equivalent of 6 hours per year of certification).

NMTCB Alternate Recertification Pathway for NCT Specialty Certificants

NMTCB Certification Board
Fri 3/29/2019 10:45 AM

The NMTCB’s recertification policy has recently been revised to allowNuclear Cardiology (NCT)andPositron Emission Tomography (PET) specialty certificants the option to re-certify by a route other than traditional re-examination.

Specialty credential holders now have the option of recertifying their NCT or PET specialty certifications by using an “Alternate Recertification Pathway"which requires the certificant to obtain and document specialty-specific continuing education activitiesto demonstrate their continued accumulation of knowledge about the specialty field.


  • Specialty certificants who have already let their NCT or PET credential EXPIREwill be allowed a one-time option of regaining their certification by displaying 24 hours of specialty-specific continuing education hours and completing an Alternate Specialty Recertification Applicationby December 31, 2020.
  • Specialty certificants who have aCURRENTcredential will also have alimited time opportunityto extend their specialty credential another seven (7) years from the date of approval by submitting documentation of the completion of 24 specialty-specific continuing education hours and completing an Alternate Specialty Recertification Application.
    (Example: You submit all the alternate recertification application requirements and are approved on August 1, 2019. Your NCT specialty expiration date will then be extended to August 1, 2026.)
  • Continuing Education (CE) activities used for recertification MUST be related to the specialty certification. CE activities must pertain to topics listed on the Nuclear Cardiology Specialty Exam Content Outline, available here:
  • Specialty CE credits you obtain may count towards your entry level CNMT certification maintenance requirements. Any CE credits submitted for specialty recertification purposes should have the appropriate information in the title of the credit.(i.e. the activity title should clearly indicate Nuclear Cardiology topics.)

This limited time offer is only good through December 31, 2020.Once this offer expires, specialty certificants who want to recertify for an additional seven years will be required to (1) successfully pass the specialty examination OR (2)display 42 hours of acceptable specialty-specific continuing education for each year of certification. (The equivalent of 6 hours per year of certification.) Please note that no more than half of the specialty CE hours should be obtained in the 12 months prior to credential expiration.

To request anAlternate Specialty Recertification Application:
Please contact NMTCB by clicking HEREor emailing your request to Recertification application documents are not available online.

Effective January 1, 2021, any individual who lets their specialty credential expire without completing the alternate rectification route will only have the option of successfully passing the specialty exam in order to regain the credential. Specialty certificants will be expected to submit all of the CEs related to their specific exam at the time of recertification and prior to their credential's expiration date.

Hello Mr. Marshel

I would like to personally thank you for making this easy for me and very simple. I am pleased how easy it was and I had no worries about the videos. I sure wish MORE institutions were like you and your institution because then more deaf people like me would have this opportunity. I am now processing for the License for CT - and hoping to pass my CT exam in the next year or so.

I appreciate all you have done and the easy communication.
I will for sure be back for future CEUs and so on. I find it easier for me to do this instead of having several different websites to pay for.
Again Thank you

Dear Professor Marshel,

I just want to let you know that I passed my NMTCB Exam! It was a challenging experience for me not only doing all my review but also in getting a testing site outside of US. I took a leave for two weeks to prepare last july and by the end of my leave, i would take the exam which was supposed to be in Malaysia. But, unluckily, the testing body had inform me a week before that the site is no longer available. I was really in panic! I called the isotesting and told me that the nearest country option for me were Australia or India. I have 1 week left and Australia was not possible due to Visa issues and so, I took the risk of getting the India testing Centre.

> It was a challenging experience but I have learn so many moments in going to India. I could never forget how anxious i was both the exam and the strange country that i would be going. I had an adventurous time! Anyways, With Grace, I Finally Pass!!

Thank you,
