Additional & Enhanced Practice Authorizations

Enhanced practice refers to practice that requires the practitioner to perform restricted activities that are not authorized for the member’s area of practice in which they are registered. An example of this would be a technologist who is practicing in the area of PET/CT.  This role requires the technologists to be authorized in restricted activities from both nuclear medicine (PET) and radiological (CT) specialities.

Members seeking this authorization are required to complete advanced training approved by Council. When all requirements have been satisfied, the College will indicate a ‘condition of practice’ on the practice permit indicating the achievement of an enhanced practice skill set. Members granted enhanced practice will be required to verify maintenance of competence upon renewal each year.
