FluoroSafety recommends our Combination Course, which meets the full 10 CME requirement for renewing a California Fluoroscopy Supervisor and Operator (S+O) Permit. This course also meets the Joint Commission environment of care (EC.02.04.03 and HR.01.05.03)  fluoroscopy standards which necessitate ongoing education and annual training for individuals use fluoroscopic equipment (HR.01.05.03).

Licentiates who don’t need the full 10 hours can take our Advanced Training Program to earn 8 hours on radiation safety for the clinical use of fluoroscopy or our Basic Training Program, which provides 4 hours.  We recommend our Advanced Training Program for heavy users of fluoroscopy such as cardiologists, radiologists and pain-management specialists.  Other users may find the Basic Training Program provides sufficient instruction while meeting the CA rule.
