You must be registered with CMRITO in order to be legally authorized to practice in medical radiation and imaging technology in Ontario. Registration is an important regulatory tool to ensure the protection of the public by allowing only those individuals who have met the registration requirements, including an approved educational program and certification examination, to be registered and legally authorized to practise.
The CMRTIO issues certificates of registration in five specialties:
It is a condition on every member’s certificate of registration that the member must be educated and experienced in every area in which they practice.
CMRITO members are authorized to practise in more than one specialty provided the member has satisfied the registration requirements for each specialty and is registered in each specialty.
It is a condition of a specialty certificate of registration that, within every five year period after issuance of the certificate, you engage in competent practice as a medical radiation and imaging technologist in at least one of the specialties in which you hold a certificate of registration. This means that if you hold a certificate of registration in two specialties – for example, radiography and magnetic resonance – then you can maintain both specialties on your certificate of registration provided that you are engaged in competent practice in at least one of the specialties within the five-year period.
It is also a condition of a certificate of registration that you provide the College with details of any of the following that relates to you and that occurs or arises after your registration:
It is also a condition of a certificate of registration that you maintain professional liability insurance or protection against professional liability in accordance with the requirements set out in the by-laws of the College.
