Statement of Compliance


December Latest News 

Important Information Regarding Membership and VSOA

From 1 January 2017 the Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy will no longer be issuing a Validated Statement of Accreditation.

Members who currently hold a Validated Statement of Accreditation will transition to a Statement of Compliance. Those members in the current CPD triennium that have met the CPD requirements will automatically be rolled over into a new triennium with a new Statement of Compliance.

Certificates are now accessible online through the member’s portal – CPD – Certificates.

Successful completion of the CPD program
Successful completion of the CPD program requires a participant to claim a minimum of 150 credits over the triennial period, with a minimum of 25 credits in any one year of the cycle, with the credits claimed from a minimum of six of the nine CPD categories. 

Members 
To maintain membership of ASMIRT and its associated benefits, all members with the exception of Student, Retired, Associate and Life members, are required to successfully complete the CPD program.  CPD credit claims can be made either by the online lodgement program or via the submission of a manual log.  

Membership in 2017
From the 1st January 2017, anyone who is not currently a member and is seeking any category of membership for the first time (excluding students) will be charged an entrance fee and the respective membership fee. Existing members will not be charged this entrance fee.

During the first 12 months of new membership a limited number of membership benefits will be available to all new members. The full range of membership benefits will automatically be available to those members who have held continuous membership for greater than 12 months when membership is renewed.

Why a Statement of Compliance? 
As described above a Statement of Compliance supersedes the Validated Statement of Accreditation and indicates to employers and the public that the holder participates in lifelong learning and commits to the highest standards of professional practice. CPD is a process through which Medical Radiation Practitioners maintain and develop skills to ensure that they retain their competence to practice safely, effectively and legally within their evolving scope of practice.  

What happens in subsequent years?
Each year as a triennium cycle concludes, Medical Radiation Practitioners who:

· hold a Statement of Compliance expiring that year

· have successfully completed CPD in accordance with ASMIRT program requirements

· are Members of ASMIRT, or
  are enrolled in the ASMIRT CPD program under non-Member provisions, or
  are enrolled in the ASMIRT CPD program under an Employer Sponsorship agreement, or
are not enrolled in the ASMIRT program, upon payment of a CPD Assessment Fee,

will be issued with a renewed Statement of Compliance

Essentially, as the CPD programs continue to cycle through the years, each expiring group gaining their Statement of Compliance must provide the CPD evidence to support renewal. 

 

Certification for the Medical Radiation Professional

ASMIRT offers a range of certifications for the Medical Radiation Professional.

Undertaking examinations and being part of the various ASMIRT Certification Programs is an indication of your knowledge and commitment to your speciality within the Medical Radiations profession. Some departments and practices require Certification prior to employment. ASMIRT Certifications are not a qualification like a Master’s degree which has no clinical requirement, but rather programs that ensure a level of knowledge that is measurable and common across Australia.
