The interactive session about NMT competencies is an annual appointment proposed by EANM-TC to present the work made by the committee and discuss it with the Technologist community in the form of an interactive session. Every year EANM-TC try to discuss a different aspect of this delicate matter and receive feedback from the audience. In 2014 EANM asked the Technologist Commitee to update the document on competencies published in 1999 and results will be presented. The session will start with an overview of the old document and the principle followed in its creation and how it was received internationally. Next we will update on discussions happened in later years driving to the presentation of the new document. A long time will be left for interactive questions and discussion on them with the audience.

Key Words:

Competencies, Advance Practice, Technologist, Interaction
