The ARRT Exam

The final step on your way to becoming certified and registered with ARRT is to take an examination in your discipline. Our exams measure your knowledge of the daily tasks that an entry-level technologist performs. 

Our exams are challenging, yet fair. They’re created with help from industry experts around the country, including Registered Technologists (R.T.s) in your desired discipline. 

Once you enter an ARRT-recognized educational program, you’ll begin to build the skills you need to work as a technologist—and the knowledge to take an ARRT exam. Although we don’t endorse any specific exam study materials, many program directors and students use our Content Specifications (often referred to as content outlines) as a guide to help prepare for exam day. 

As you get closer to graduation, we encourage you to come back and review the exam pages in the student section of our website. You’ll find detailed information on how we create our tests, what to expect at the test center, exam security rules, and what happens after you complete the exam.
