In July, ARRT recommended changes to its governing documents. We sent the proposed changes to all R.T.s and asked for your comments. Although most respondents agreed with the proposals, a few proposed changes caused some controversy. Here’s a recap of why we proposed those changes and how they will—and won’t—affect you.
The annual cost of renewing your first ARRT credential is increasing slightly for 2018.
If you’re seeking an ARRT credential using our postprimary pathway—or planning to do so—be aware of changes in our structured education requirement. Learn more.
Until now, ARRT has allowed R.T.s to use newly earned credentials to satisfy their biennial CE requirements. We’ve changed this rule for R.T.s whose biennia start on or after Jan. 1, 2018. Learn more.
If you violate one of ARRT’s Rules of Ethics, you must let us know within 30 days of the event or at your annual renewal, whichever comes first.
Under a new policy, you may now schedule and sit for ARRT exams—even if you’re under an ARRT ethics review.
ARRT investigated nearly 2,000 ethics violations in 2016, and only 36 cases (2 percent) resulted in revocation. If you think you’ve committed an ethics violation, be sure to let us know. It’s much better to report an issue than to try to hide it. Learn more.
ARRT’s Code of Ethics is one of our profession’s most important documents. It outlines the professional behaviors to which imaging and radiation therapy professionals aspire.
Each year, The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) funds scholarships to help people further their educations in medical imaging, interventional procedures, and radiation therapy. Jackie Sondrol, R.T. (R)(CT)(MR)(ARRT)—pictured here—recently received a professional development grant from ARRT in partnership with the Society for MR Radiographers & Technologists (SMRT). Learn more about our scholarships and other recent winners.
At the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, we’re pleased to support the technologists who are certified and registered with us. Most recently, we participated in the annual conference of the Society for Diagnostic Medical Sonography, an event for sonographers, students, and other health-care providers who use sonography.
