Radiology Certification: Public Law 97-35 requires that persons who administer radiologic procedures meet the credentialing standards in 42 CFR Part 75.

Essentially, they must (1) have successfully completed an educational program that meets or exceeds the standards described in that regulation, and is accredited by an organization recognized by the Department of Education, and (2) be certified as radiographers in their field.

The following meet these requirements: (1) Persons employed by the Federal Government as radiologic personnel prior to the effective date of the regulation (January 13, 1986) who show evidence of current or fully satisfactory performance or certification of such from a licensed practitioner such as a doctor of medicine, osteopathy, dentistry, podiatry, or chiropractic who prescribes radiologic procedures to others.

(2) Persons first employed by the Federal Government as radiologic personnel after the effective date of the regulation who (a) received training from institutions in a State or foreign jurisdiction that did not accredit training in that particular field at the time of graduation, or (b) practiced in a State or foreign jurisdiction that did not license that particular field or did not allow special eligibility to take a licensure examination for those who did not graduate from an accredited educational program, provided such persons show evidence of training, experience, and competence, as determined by OPM or the employing agency.

In addition to meeting the basic requirement above, to qualify for this position you must also meet the qualification requirements listed below: GS-05 Requirements: Specialized experience: One year of specialized experience which includes performing diagnostic x-rays.

This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service (GS-04).

OR Successful completion of a full-time training course of at least 24 months' duration in a post-high school radiography program.

OR Successful completion of a course for medical radiologic technicians in the Armed Forces is qualifying on a month-for-month basis up to the 1 year of specialized experience required for GS-5.

OR Combination of Experience and Education at the GS-05 level: If you have some but not all of the experience or education described above, you may still qualify by combining the amount of creditable experience and education that you do have.

To do so, compute the percentage of your requirements met, the sum of which must equal at least 100%.

(To compute the percentage, divide your total months of qualifying experience by 12.

Then divide your semester hours of qualifying undergraduate education by 60.

Add the two percentages.) GS-06 Requirements Specialized Experience: One year of specialized experience which includes performing radiographic examinations/procedures and setting up the x-ray room.

This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service (GS-05).

OR Education: A half year (i.e., 9 semester hours) of graduate level education in a field directly related to the work of the position, such as Diagnostic Radiology/Radiography.

OR Combination of Education and Experience: A combination of education and experience may be used to qualify for this position as long as the computed percentage of the requirements is at least 100%.

To compute the percentage of the requirements, divide your total months of experience by 12.

Then divide the total number of completed graduate semester hours (or equivalent) by 9. Add the two percentages.

GS-07 Requirements Specialized experience: One year of specialized experience which includes performing radiographic examinations/procedures.

Operating portable radiographic imaging, and performing quality control procedures, such as, reviewing films for quality of image.

Education Substitution for Specialized Experience for GS-07: One full year of graduate level education in a field directly related to the work of the position, such as Diagnostic Radiology/Radiography.

OR Combination of Experience and Education Substitution for Specialized Experience for GS-07: A combination of education and experience may be used to qualify for this position as long as the computed percentage of the requirements is at least 100%.

To compute the percentage of the requirements, divide your total months of experience by 12.

Then divide the total number of completed graduate semester hours (or equivalent) by 18.

Add the two percentages.
