Sonographers must hold relevant and accredited postgraduate qualifications in their area of practice to be listed as an accredited sonographer with ASAR. Accredited sonographers are required to document their continuing professional development (CPD) activities with one of the ASAR recognised CPD programs, in order to remain on the register.
