Based on what criteria? >>>why you have to take two exams with ARDMS all this is just money thing<<< I assume from this statement that an understanding of physics is unimportant??? OK, If I get the gist of your argument (perhaps not) two tests cost more than one so more "profit" for the non-profit organization. I still to not understand your arguement. >>>My hospital is getting Accredetation based on my credential <<< So the issue is "acceptable" credentials? No, the issue is; did your lab receive accreditation from a respectable agency. >>>and I dont think that I know less then any body <<< Well, I know I know less than lots of bodies, but more than some. The issue is not what I know, but how has my knowledge been tested. Can I demonstrate mimimal level competency? That is the Only reason for the credential testing we have at present. >>>I am an intructor at George Washington University<<<(sic) Sorry but I was not intructed there. >>>Your credential dose not preove any thing it is you who has to know what you are doing<<< Only thing I wanted to "preove" was my competence.. To myself, but for my patients. >>>you can earn these credentials only by taking Edelman's courses <<< Whoops, you got me there. I should of done that, but why, if my credentials do not prove anything?. Guess I have a lot to learn. Sorry folks, gotta to sign up for Sid's course now. I sure as heck can wait for the course at George. Sorry Naveed for my lack of diplomacy here, but you kind of got my goat. If you can support the statements you made and I quoted, I hope you will. "til then, Peace and understanding.
