Srf radiography and fluoroscopy supervisor and operator

We offer fluoroscopy courses to assist you in studying for the California Fluoroscopy Permit exam or the combined Radiography and Fluoroscopy Supervisor and Operator (SRF) permit exam.
This course lays the groundwork for providing care to a variety of people. The conceptual foundation for patient- and family-centered care, as well as the fundamentals of cultural competence, will be covered. The role of the Joint Commission in patient care, as well as barriers to providing optimal care, are all discussed.
This course covers the dangers of musculoskeletal disorders and repetitive motion injuries that can occur during the patient transport process. For long- and short-term patient comfort, proper body mechanics, specialized tools for patient transfer, and accurate positioning are also discussed.
This class looks at the factors and characteristics of microorganisms that cause infection. You’ll also learn how to recognize disease transmission modes, identify infectious disease stages, and use infection prevention strategies at home and at work.

In addition, the state of California requires fluoroscopy continuing education for fluoroscopy supervisors and operators, as well as California physicians, physician assistants, and other “Licentiates of the Healing Arts” who hold a fluoroscopy supervisor and operator permit. These classes were created to meet those requirements.
5 CE Credits in Fluoroscopy This course provides 5 CE / CME credits for fluoroscopy radiation protection for patients and staff, which are excellent for ARRT category A and A+ or California state tech and physician requirements.
5 More Credits in Fluoroscopy A pediatric flouroscopy review course that will meet your Fluoroscopy CME / CE requirements for ARRT* and all 50 state registries, as well as for California technologists and doctors, all at once.
If you are a California-licensed radiologic technologist or XT, you only need fluoroscopy-specific CE credits if you have the CA Fluoroscopy permit. If you do, these fluoroscopy CE credits will be applied to your ARRT CE* biennium total of 24 credits.

California fluoroscopy permit explained

All licentiates, including doctors and physicians assistants, must receive 10 approved CE credits in the two years immediately preceding the expiration date of their California Fluoroscopy Supervisor and Operator Permit, according to Title 17 of the California Code of Regulations [17 CCR 30403(b)].


For clinical fluoroscopy, at least four of the ten credits must be in radiation safety.

Different rules apply to radiologists in California, as explained here.
Licentiates who do not need the full 10 hours should enroll in our Advanced Training Program, which provides 8 hours of radiation safety training for the clinical use of fluoroscopy, or our Basic Training Program, which provides 4 hours of radiation safety training.
For heavy users of fluoroscopy, such as cardiologists, radiologists, and pain-management professionals, we suggest our Advanced Training Program.
Other users may find that the Basic Training Program is adequate for their needs while still adhering to the CA rule.
Our Fluoroscopy training programs will help you prepare for the State of California Supervisor and Operator Fluoroscopy Examination in addition to providing CME credit. Combining our Advanced Training Program on the Safe Use of Fluoroscopy with self-review of the Exam Content Specification is an effective way to prepare for the exam.

Fluoroscopy radiation safety course section 3

Any radiologic technologist or physician who uses fluoroscopy in the state of California is required to renew their license. The California Department of Public Health’s Radiologic Health Branch is in charge of overseeing the renewal of these licenses. This renewal aims to ensure that those who use fluoroscopy are properly educated and briefed in order to protect public safety.
While renewing a California fluoroscopy license may appear to be a time-consuming and tedious process, it does not have to be. Use the information provided here to ensure that you remain compliant and that your license is renewed in accordance with current regulations.
You can send an email to the relevant department if you have not received the renewal forms within 45 days of your permit expiration. Include your certificate number or permit number, as well as your mailing address.
It is inconvenient and frustrating if your fluoroscopy permit renewal is sent to an old address or to a different address. Remember that it is your responsibility to keep your information current.
