21 NCAC 10.0213 (f) Certification Expiration and Renewal

Starting with certifications issued or renewed on or after July 1, 2022, a certificate of competency shall expire on June 30th of the second year following the year in which it was issued unless otherwise renewed. A (Level I) certificate holder seeking to renew shall submit evidence that the applicant has completed six hours of Board-approved continuing education.

A Level 2 certificate holder shall complete six hours of education applicable to a Level 1 renewal plus six hours in radiologic technology. A certificate of attendance or completion issued by the course sponsor and filed with the Board shall constitute prima facie evidence that the applicant has completed the number of hours recited in the certificate. The applicant shall pay to the Board a renewal fee in the amount of fifty dollars ($50.00).

21 NCAC 10.0213 (g) Lapsed Certificates

If a certificate of competency has lapsed due to non-renewal and the lapse does not exceed 60 days, the certificate holder may obtain reinstatement by making up the accrued deficiency in continuing education. If the lapse is greater than 60 days, no make-up continuing education shall be required, but the certificate holder shall re-take and pass the proficiency examination for new applicants. Regardless of the length of lapse, a certificate holder seeking reinstatement shall pay the renewal fee set forth in Paragraph (f) of this Rule.

There is no additional renewal fee for Level II certificates beyond the required $50 Level I renewal fee.
