<< When I took my registry exam for abdominal ultrasonography I did not open a
book I just went and I took the exam because I was in the field and I had
at least one year of experiance that knowledge I earned in one year was
more than enough to pass abd registry exam.
Then I took my OB/GYN registry exam I did not study reason because I had
almost 2yrs of experiance in the field and I passed it.
Then I took vascular registry exam With CCI I studied for 2 days I passed
it because I had 3 yrs of experience in vascular technology my experience
and knowledge I earned was more than enough to help to to pass exam
so if I can pass CCI exam with 3yrs of experience and 2days of study
so some one who has 5yrs of experience and RVT credential already is
suppose to pass exam with out any problem because these exames are designed
to test your level if you really know what you are doing. That will be too
bad if you fail exam after 5yrs experiance and RVT credential.
RVS credentail is not an easy way out if you know stuff you earn it if you
dont know stuff you will fail it.Dont tell me that you give this exam to
some body who has no background in cardiovascular technology will pass it
I dont think I will be going for RVT credential because I already got
RVS credential which is accepted by HCFA,ACR,and probably ICAVL too so
I dont see any reason for spending $400 to earn RVT credential.Yes if
there was some kind of problem with RVS credential then I was going to do
it but there is no need to do it.Infact my boss and other fellow techs
all are taking RVS exam with CCI.One neurology group came to me and they
were looking for information about credentaling in vascular area for their
techs I told them about both RVT and RVS credentials and they liked RVS
We have an excellent ultrasound lab and every single tech is good and every
body is giong to get registerd through CCI.
