The Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program outlines our dedication to encouraging the ARDMS community’s ongoing education. Knowledge Confirmation is the fourth and newest component of MOC.
In June 2023, we will announce more details about Knowledge Confirmation’s program requirements, including policies and procedures pertaining to the SKILLS App quizzes. They will become requirements for credential maintenance in June 2024. Join the conversation and share your feedback now!
Why does Knowledge Confirmation matter?
Knowledge Confirmation focuses specifically on creating a space for sonographers to demonstrate their skills and open opportunities to learn and grow. Our process aims to highlight and open potential areas for learning and growth in knowledge, skills, and abilities.
Housed in the SKILLS App, the Knowledge Confirmation program challenges Registrants to demonstrate their continuing commitment to competence with easy-to-access quizzes built upon their earned specialties.
Knowledge Confirmation also supports the requirements for accreditation of ARDMS certification in accordance with the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB). Certification programs accredited by ANAB to the ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024:2012 standard represent a designation of excellence, recognized worldwide by employers, industry leaders, hiring managers, and credential holders.
The Knowledge Confirmation program was originally introduced as Recertification at ARDMS. Learn more about the program’s history.

As a career-long learning opportunity, the SKILLS App supports the Knowledge Confirmation program as a tool that fits into our Registrants’ regular schedules, establishes learning over time, and doesn’t require returning to a brick and mortar testing center.
