Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB)

The NMTCB is a premier certification board formed for the purpose of creating and maintaining examinations for nuclear medicine technologists (NMTs). The standards established by the NMTCB include educational requirements, practical experience, and successful completion of an appropriate competency-based examination. The NMTCB certifies individuals who have developed the required body of knowledge to practice nuclear medicine technology and registers those individuals who meet these criteria. The work of the NMTCB is accomplished by technologists, scientists, and physicians.

The NMTCB credential is recognized in the nuclear medicine profession as the premier examination for nuclear medicine technologists. It is recognized by state licensure agencies throughout the United States, and it is recognized by employers as a valid, high-quality certification exam. It also allows the use of the professional credential "CNMT" to identify a certified nuclear medicine technologist.

All eligibility standards required to sit for the entry-level examination must be completed within the 5-year period immediately prior to the candidate’s application. A candidate must show documented evidence of having completed an NMTCB recognized nuclear medicine technology program or completion of an accredited nuclear medicine technology program culminating in a Certificate, Associate, Baccalaureate, or Master's degree. Educational programs must have structured clinical training sufficient to provide clinical competency in radiation safety, instrumentation, clinical procedures, and radiopharmacy.

NMTCB ensures an active CNMT’s continuing competence by requiring a recertification process that includes twenty-four CE credits over the course of every two years. Refer to the NMTCB website to review detailed continuing education requirement information for CNMT, NMTCB(CT), NMAA, NCT, and PET. https://www.nmtcb.org/policies/contedPolicy.php#orgs
