CRES Preparation (2 Part Class)
AAMI Credentials Institute (ACI) now offers the independent certification testing in the areas of biomedical, clinical lab, and radiology formerly offered by the International Certification Commission (ICC). The radiological endorsement is called Certification for Radiological Equipment Specialist (CRES). The test consists of a series of multiple choice questions divided into 5 sections. Up to 6 hours are allowed for completing the exam. This 8-hour course is designed to teach the experienced service professional the requisite knowledge necessary to successfully pass the radiological portion of the CRES test. The subjects include radiation physics, radiation safety, anatomy, physiology, X-ray equipment use, CDRH compliance testing, electronics, and troubleshooting. Sample testing during this program helps to reinforce good testing techniques and confidence in the process
*Please note: There is an additional cost of $100 for the CRES Prep sessions. Both the Friday and Saturday CRES Prep sessions MUST be attended in order to receive continuing education credit.
