In August 2017, ARDMS shared with the community that the Recertification program had been put on hold until further notice. Since the discontinuation of the NE examination was set to coincide with the recertification timelines, the Board of Directors approved a resolution that the "RDMS Neurosonology (NE) credential will be maintained until a Recertification program model is established."
Therefore, if you hold the RDMS (NE) credential, ARDMS will continue to support it until a Recertification program model is established. You can read about the decision to put the recertification program on hold here.
In addition to extending the maintenance of the RDMS (NE), ARDMS has re-established the discount for the Pediatric Sonography (PS) examination (one discount per Registrant for the duration of the pause in the recertification program) to anyone who currently holds the NE specialty. Those who hold the RDMS (NE) credential will be able to take the PS examination for $125 USD (half the normal cost); the discount will automatically be applied during the application process.
