Levels & Certificates

While the four-level program structure provided a strong leadership foundation and first-class educational experiences to thousands of radiology professionals, in 2017 we began to streamline the overall program to provide you with even more opportunities to get the training you need, when you need it. 

This change means that the opportunity to work toward RLI levels and receive the current certificates will no longer be offered after January 31, 2018.

RLI participants will have until January 31, 2018 to complete any RLI coursework and submit a practicum proposal for review/acceptance.  Practicum projects must be completed by June 1, 2018.  Please contact Chrissy Warner, RLI Curriculum Advisor, at rliadvisor@acr.org or 703-637-4381 with any questions.  Please review the following information regarding each level and its corresponding requirements. 

Levels I -IV are instructional in nature, while Level V is honorary and has been designated as the Leadership Luminary. 

Credit requirements:

  • A total of 110.5 RLI credit(s) are required to complete all four levels. These credits must be a combination of mandatory and elective credit required at each level.
  • At least half of the credit requirements at each level must be met via successful participation in courses covering mandatory competencies, with the remaining credits achieved as electives.
  • Most courses will include an assessment of proficiency that participants must pass in order to receive RLI Credit for the course.
