I am starting this petition in regards to the new ARDMS RECERTIFICATION ASSESSMENT PROGRAM which is to start in 2012. Many ultrasonographers have been in this profession for many years and feel that it is unfair to have to be subjected to these exams again. The unfortunate fact, is that many sonographers feel they are too old to have to re-study and this program will force people into early retirement. I feel that it would be more acceptable in the ultrasound community if there was a specific date, such as anyone who was registered before 7/1/2010 is grandfathered in and exempt from these requirements. Please join my crusade and help voice our opinion, if we stand together we will be strong. Fill out your name/ email/ registry number and what credentials you have so that ARDMS can see who we are. As one I am nothing, but if we all join together our voices will be heard.
Thanks for your support,
