Enhance the Value and Increase the Reach of your Educational Activities
The Continuing Education Credit Approval Program (CECAP) offers you the ability to have your education activity accredited for ARRT-approved “Category A” credits. This process ensures that meaningful educational activities are offered to Canadian MRTs, shows your participants you’re your activity has met high educational standards, and brings value to your event.
Benefits of Accreditation
- Once approved, your activity will fulfill continuing education requirements established by provincial associations or regulatory bodies, including the ARRT, so MRTs will know that taking your activity directly benefits them!
- This accreditation indicates to your participants that the event meets high educational standards.
- Obtaining approval is easy and collaborative!
- You will enjoy complimentary listing on the CPD Repository and can brand your activity as CAMRT-CECAP approved.
Credit Approval Overview
When an application for Category A credits comes from a sponsor (you), it is reviewed against ARRT requirements. The ARRT has mandatory policies, processes, and standards that CAMRT maintains during the credit approval process. While this is completed in the CAMRT office, a subject matter expert(s) reviews the content of the event.
For an educational activity to be approved, it must be a planned continuing professional development activity related to medical radiation technology. It must enhance the professional knowledge, skill, and judgment of the MRT in providing services to patients, peers, the public, and other healthcare professionals. The subject matter must be well covered and be related to current or future practice.
After any questions are answered and the review fee is paid, an approval letter including a credit reference code is issued, which includes mandatory requirements for the sponsor (you) surrounding attendance tracking, letters of completion, and accreditation code expiration date.
Please reach out to email@example.com with questions or if you require non-Category A credits.
