How can I find out if my school is accredited?
Visit the list of ARRT-recognized educational programs.
How can I get a handbook for Primary applications?
Handbooks for Radiography, Nuclear Medicine Technology, Radiation Therapy, Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Sonography can be found online. Applications can be obtained through individual program directors.
I was educated outside the U.S. How can I become certified and registered with the ARRT?
Graduates from programs that are not accredited by a mechanism acceptable to the ARRT should seek advanced placement in an accredited program. Upon meeting the program's graduation requirements and receiving the program director's final endorsement on the application, the candidate may apply. ARRT's primary eligibility pathway to certification and registration requires graduation from an educational program accredited by a mechanism acceptable to the ARRT. Currently accepted programmatic accreditation mechanisms include the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), the Joint Review Committee on Education in Nuclear Medicine Technology (JRCNMT), and the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Programs (CAAHEP/JRCDMS). Programs housed in post-secondary institutions accredited by a regional accreditation agency (more specifically, the commissions responsible for accrediting degree-granting institutions) are also accredited by a mechanism acceptable to the ARRT. The Conjoint Secretariat of the Canadian Medical Association and the Australian Institute of Radiography are recognized as acceptable accreditation mechanisms.
