Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Nuclear medicine technologists must know the minimum federal standards for use and administration of nuclear drugs and equipment. Licensing requirements vary by state. In 2015, about half of all states required technologists to be licensed. Certification or registration are also available through the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Many nuclear medicine technologist positions, especially those in hospitals, are open only to certified or registered technologists. Information on becoming registered or certified is available from the ARRT and the NMTCB.
