I passed the exam. Can I start using mini C arm once I receive my certificate?
The course provides the underpinning knowledge needed to use the mini C arm safely but a period of supervised practice in the workplace is then needed. This should be carried out by someone who is competent to carry out this type of imaging – for example: a radiographer or a surgeon who uses the equipment.
