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)
RVS: Society for Vascular Ultrasound (SVU)
RCIS: Alliance of Cardiovascular Professionals (ACVP)
RCES: Heart Rhythm Society (HRS)
RPhS: American Vein and Lymphatic Society (AVLS) (formerly the American College of Phlebology (ACP))
ACS, RCS, RCCS, RVS, RPhS: Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS)

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