By Continuing Education

RCC recertification is due every two years. An RCC may recertify by either retaking the examination or by obtaining continuing education credits (CEU) in radiology coding. For information on recertification by examination, click here. The rules for submitting a recertification application using continuing education credits are as follows:

Continuing Education for recertification may be applied from the date of your certification, and must be renewed before the expiration of your current certification. Current certification expires two years from the date you become certified or recertified. It is your responsibility to keep track of your certificate expiration and apply for recertification accordingly.

Applications for recertification by continuing education must be received at the RCCB® office by the deadline listed here. However, applications may be submitted up to 90 days prior to the deadline date. Please mail your application to RCCB®, 9990 Fairfax Blvd., Ste. 430, Fairfax, VA 22030 via a traceable method such as Federal Express or certified mail or fax to 703.621.3356. Please be aware that the RCCB® Board is not responsible for applications not delivered by the deadline or lost in the mail. Applications that do not arrive by the final deadline will not be accepted.

A minimum of 12 CEU credits in RCCB®-accepted radiology coding sessions are required to recertify by CEUs.

You must submit proof of obtaining 12 RCCB®-accepted CEU credits in radiology coding by submitting copies of the certificates with your application.

The RCCB® Board will review the submitted CEU certificates and has the sole responsibility for making the final decision as to approval.

A certification notice will be mailed to each candidate within 60 days of application submission.
