The method by which continuing education credits are tracked depends on the industry and the educational institution. Professionals can keep their certificates and maintain their own files with regard to continuing education credits, use a software program to track their credits or use an industry-approved record-keeping service.
The American Society of Radiologic Technicians, or ASRT, for example, is authorized to track continuing education credits for professionals in this field. Members of the ASRT submit their certificates from continuing education courses and the organization validates those records for audits. Software programs like KRC's Continuing Ed Tracker offer both free and paid versions for professionals who want to track their own credits.
