For physicians, there is Category I and II continuing medical education (CME). For technologists, there are Category A and B continuing education units (CEU). Under the final regulations, physicians can only count Category I CME to meet their requirements. Will technologists be similarly restricted to counting only Category A CEU?
No. There is no distinction in the regulations between Category A and B CEU for technologists. Either is acceptable under the final regulations, but must be appropriately documented.
