The following meet these requirements:

    Have successfully completed an educational program that meets or exceeds the standards described in 42 CFR Part 75, and is accredited by an organization recognized by the Department of Education and I am certified as a radiographer in my field as evidenced by my active State or national license which is in good standing.
    -OR-
    Have been employed by the Federal Government in a Radiologic position prior to January 13, 1986 and show evidence of current or fully satisfactory performance or certification of such from a licensed practitioner such as a doctor of medicine, osteopathy, dentistry, podiatry, or chiropractic who prescribes radiologic procedures to others.

    -AND-

    I have one year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-6 grade level in the Federal Service performing standard diagnostic radiological procedures utilizing proper techniques, positioning and experience; utilizing tools for radiologic examinations such as wedges, rolls, and boards to assist with alternate positions for patients and unusual specimens with deformities or injuries and determining the most appropriate radiological studies and views to perform and assist with appropriate medical diagnosis and treatment.

    I have one year of graduate level education.
    -OR-
    I meet the minimum qualifications based on Superior Academic Achievement.
