For Cardiovascular Educators

As part of CCI’s commitment to the professional triad: professional organizations, personnel credentialing, and educational programs, we work to stay connected to cardiovascular educators. We recently launched the CCI Cardiovascular Educator Community, an online discussion platform to keep you connected and engaged with your peers. Contact communications@cci-online.org for assistance with accessing the platform. 

Our annual Cardiovascular Educators' Forum is designed for faculty (didactic and clinical), program coordinators, and program directors who specialize in developing and teaching cardiac and vascular technology courses. This in-person event, typically hosted in Scottsdale, AZ will serve as an opportunity for educators to network and share experiences in eLearning, instructional technology, and instructional design with an emphasis on transitioning from traditional classroom instruction to online and/or virtual learning.

Sample Letters & Results Requests

Release of Student Results

As a service to cardiovascular technology educational programs, CCI will, upon request, release a student/graduate's examination results to their program director.

In order for CCI to release student results, the applicant/candidate must give permission to CCI in one of two ways:

  1. At the time of application, applicants can authorize the release of their results by checking the authorization box found under the Educational Background section of the CCI Examination Application and providing the required information.
    OR
  2. After application submission a candidate can authorize the release of their results by providing a signed authorization that includes the required information. The signed authorization must include the name of the school and program director’s name and mailing address. Requests must be made in writing and results will be sent via mail. Results will not be given over the phone.
For individuals who granted permission on their initial application, educators can expect to receive results within the same time frame as the official results (15 to 20 business days after testing) are sent.

Results letters will not include the score, but will include pass/fail result only.

CCI Cardiovascular Educators’ Forum

The CCI Board of Trustees has been allocating funds to give back to the cardiovascular education community as part of its strategic plan since 2012. These funds are used to host the annual Cardiovascular Educators’ Forum each Spring. Educators from invasive cardiovascular technology, echocardiography, vascular ultrasound, and electrophysiology programs from across the United States and Canada are invited to participate, through an application process, at a minimal cost with travel, conference meals, and one night hotel costs covered. The 2012 to 2017 Forums were held in Las Vegas, Nevada with attendees numbering from 35 to 90 over the years. In 2018 the Forum moved to Scottsdale, Arizona. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Forum was cancelled. The forum returned in 2021 with a virtual conference held April 30 to May 1. 

CCI’s Educators Luncheon at the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS) Annual Conference

Since 2011, CCI has been offered the opportunity to host a luncheon at the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS) Annual Conference.

Cardiac and Vascular Sonography Educators and Clinical Coordinators are invited to join Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI) for a free Lunch & Learn during the SDMS Annual Conference each year during the Educators' Track pre-conference session on Thursday. Registration and topic information is available on the SDMS Conference app each year.

These luncheons have reinforced CCI’s connection to educators in a face-to-face setting and strengthen the professional triad.

If you would like to be added to the mailing list to be notified about the Educators luncheon,  please email Cresta Archuletta, Director of Communications, at carchuletta@cci-online.org.
