IPEM launches MRSE Certificate of Competence

IPEM is pleased to announce the launch of the IPEM Magnetic Resonance Safety Expert (MRSE) Certificate of Competence.

The certification model that IPEM has adopted requires both knowledge and experience. The knowledge is demonstrated by successfully completing the American Board of Magnetic Resonance Safety (ABMRS) MRSE exam. The MR experience of an applicant is assessed from a structured portfolio demonstrating a broad range of MRSE activities.

The scheme will open to applicants in early 2021 and more detailed information regarding experience requirements will be available at that time. There will be 2 application deadlines each year, in the second and fourth quarters. Submissions will take approximately 3 months to assess. Successful applicants will be issued with a certificate and their names will be published in IPEM communications.

The initial application fee will be £75 and the certificate of competence will be valid for 5 years.

A call for assessors will be made shortly and an assessment panel will be established in December 2020.
