Initial Requirements FoR Earning ARRT CredentialsEarning ARRT certification and registration is challenging, yet very achievable. It will take time and commitment—but your hard work will pay off. With an ARRT credential, you’ll have confidence that you're providing high levels of patient care. You’ll be proud of your accomplishments and the level at which you can perform. Employers and patients take note, too—your ARRT credential confirms your qualifications.
In order to earn ARRT certification and registration, you'll need to meet our three requirements (education, ethics, and examination). Before you get started, you'll need to identify the eligibility pathway you'll use and the discipline in which you'd like to earn a credential.
Primary Eligibility Pathway Requirements
The primary pathway is how the majority of people earn their first ARRT credential. It includes completing an ARRT-approved educational program. You can earn credentials in the following disciplines using this pathway:
POSTPRIMARY ELIGIBILITY PATHWAY REQUIREMENTS
The postprimary pathway is for those are currently certified and registered with ARRT and would like to pursue an additional credential. The postprimary pathway may also be used by those who hold a credential from ARDMS or NMTCB.
R.R.A. Eligibility REQUIREMENTS
*You can earn an MRI credential using the primary or postprimary eligibility pathways
**After Dec. 31, 2019, ARRT will offer only the Primary Eligibility Pathway for earning a Sonography credential. If you still want to use the Postprimary Eligibility Pathway to earn a Sonography credential, you’ll have to meet certain deadlines. Learn more here.
