Scope of Practice

As a credentialing agency CCI cannot recommend nor create any statements which concern scope of practice or job descriptions/functions. The final decision is always made by the hospital, laboratory, or facility following recommendations made by the cardiovascular specialty's professional society.

Professional society websites that may contain scope of practice for the following CCI certifications:

 
ACS, RCS, RCCS: American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) http://asecho.org
RVS: Society for Vascular Ultrasound (SVU) http://svunet.org
RCIS: Alliance of Cardiovascular Professionals (ACVP) http://www.acp-online.org
RCES: Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) http://hrsonline.org
RPhS: American College of Phlebology (ACP) http://phlebology.org/
ACS, RCS, RCCS, RVS, RPhS: Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS) http://sdms.org
 

CCT and CRAT individuals have no professional society and thus it is at the discretion of the employee's facility.
