Frequently Asked Questions for Cardiologists

Is this program accepted by the NRC and CBNC?
The Nuclear Education Online program is recognized by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and agreement states. The course fulfills the didactic training required by the NRC. The program is also accepted by the Certification Board of Nuclear Cardiology (CBNC) to satisfy eligibility requirements for the 80 hours of required didactic education.

When can I get started?
To get started, complete the enrollment form. Once NEO has received your enrollment form, we will send you an email which contains your specific login information. You will then be ready to begin the program.

Should I take the 80 or 200 Hour program?
If you are intending to take the Certification Board of Nuclear Cardiology (CBNC) exam, you will need to take the 80 Hour program to satisfy the didactic education requirements. If you are applying for Authorized User status with different states, please contact the State directly for appropriate requirements. Please note that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and agreement states require 80 hours of didactic education.

How can I set up local experiential training?
The experiential component of the program can be completed in the nuclear medicine department at the hospital or at the local nuclear pharmacy. If you are currently a fellow/resident at a hospital with a nuclear medicine department that has a generator on site, you may complete your training at that site, under the supervision of an Authorized User. If you do not have a site available, the NEO faculty will be glad to help set-up an appointment with a local experiential site.

Do I have continued access to review the course materials to prepare for the CBNC exam?
Yes, you will have continued access.
