There are no requirements in Australia for holding a MRI level 1/ level 2 certification. This Certification is not a qualification like a Master’s degree which has no clinical requirement, but rather a program that ensures a level of knowledge that is measurable and common across Australia.
This will be considered by ASMIRT as extenuating circumstances. To apply for special consideration to renew without resitting the exam (Part A), it is recommended that a detailed submission providing reasons for missing the renewal of your certification is submitted. Additionally, a letter from your manager detailing your MRI experience over the last 3 years since working in MRI must also be provided as supporting documentation.
The ASMIRT MRI Level 1 Certification examination is available to all medical radiation practitioners. Examinations are held online in the workplace with an ASMIRT approved supervisor.
