Instead of the traditional two-day course held adjacent to the annual meeting, Board Prep 2020 registrants will have up to 5 weeks, starting Sept 11, 2020, to review recorded lectures and take the self-paced mock exams associated with the lecture material, based on the CBNC blueprint. 

Nuclear Cardiology Certification for Technologists (NMTCB)

The Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) offers a specialty examination in nuclear cardiology. In addition to having active NMTCB, ARRT(N), or CAMRT Nuclear Medicine Certification, candidates must document a minimum of 700 hours of clinical experience performing all aspects of nuclear cardiology imaging. Supervision must be performed by a board certified cardiologist, nuclear medicine physician, or radiologist, OR direct supervision must be performed by a certified NMTCB, ARRT(N), or CAMRT nuclear medicine technologist. The NCT specialty certification is a time-limited credential that will last seven (7) years from the date of certification. After seven years, the specialty certificant has the option to recertify through either (1) re-examination OR (2) by displaying 42 hours of specialty-specific continuing education for each year of certification.
