Description

The ARDMS SKILLS App was designed to cultivate learning and assessment in ultrasound on an "easy to access" platform.

It engages the user with 10-question quizzes in ARDMS specialty areas and an explanation for the correct answer. For more information, please visit ARDMS.org/knowledge-confirmation.

What’s New

Too much

I have 5! That I will have to take.. if this replaces the 30 CME’s then I see the point but to require both is soooo much. We are already stressed from the workload and decrease in techs, and if you now require even more… I’m afraid you will push even more into retirement or not maintaining credentials at all. Increase in dues, increase in requirements, decrease in sonographers… NOT A GOOD COMBO

Hey, atiredsonographer! I hear you: life is busy. Fortunately, we're in the process of developing and reviewing the Knowledge Confirmation and Maintenance of Certification program details alongside this pilot version of the SKILLS App. If you have specific thoughts to share about the program itself (and it sounds like you do!), you're in luck – we're collecting feedback now at ardms.org/skills-feedback. Hope this helps, and thanks for sharing! Cheers from Nicole and the SKILLS App Team

The point of this app isn’t clear

Is it to replace the 30 CMEs needed to maintain credentials, or is it yet another requirement added on top of them? It’s easy enough to use, but you are required to do quizzes in every area in which you are registered. I’ve got 3- one of which I’ve never used but was required by old boss to get even though my lab doesn’t perform general ultrasounds. So you could say that those quizzes could teach me something, BUT it isn’t anything I’d use professionally- so time waster.

Hey, lamcguire! I hear you: there's a lot happening at ARDMS. Learn more about the new Knowledge Confirmation program at ardms.org/skills-app – that'll do a better job than I can here. Hope this helps, and thanks for sharing! Cheers from Nicole and the SKILLS App Team

ARDMS IS SCAM

Just another useless organization waiting for your annual fee for a credential any trained monkey could get. Study and regurgitate memorized information to get a plastic card that’s means next to nothing. It amazes me how many people have a credential but still can not perform the fundamental duties of a sonographer. Don’t tell me you’re an RVT but can only perform carotids and lower extremity venous exams. Maybe time to study for my CCI credential and leave ARDMS behind.

Developer Response ,

Hey 1dollaholla, hate to hear you feel this way. If you'd like to share thoughts or insights on our credentialing process, and be a part of improving the system with your awesome insight and expertise, I'd love to connect you with our volunteer team! The ARDMS community is powered by exceptional sonographers, and I'm sure you'd find some fresh inspiration among them. Please reach out to our contact page at ardms.org and ask for me or our volunteer engagement director – we're here to help. If you have thoughts on the actual SKILLS App here, I'd love to hear that, too! Looking forward to it, Nicole and the ARDMS SKILLS App Team
