ARRT has changed its rationale for issuing seals and certificates to Registered Technologists (R.T.s). In the past, we issued a certificate when you satisfied your initial requirements for certification and registration. We sent a new gold seal when you renewed your certification and registration each year. The certificate and seals indicated that your credentials were up to date.
When you renew your certification and registration with ARRT for next year, you’ll do it quickly and easily—online!
Early next year, you’ll have access to the first phase of a new—and easier to use—ARRT website. Finding information and doing business with us will become much more convenient. Here’s how!
This New Year’s Day, ARRT’s rules regarding ethics violations will change. Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, you’ll have to report any potential ethics violation within 30 days of its occurrence (or at your annual renewal, whichever comes first).
It’s the learning you gain from continuing education (CE) activities - and not the new credentials you might subsequently earn - that’s important to ARRT. And that’s why we’re changing the CE requirements related to earning additional credentials.
If you’re pursing a postprimary credential, you already know about clinical experience requirements.
Exam windows are the amount of time you have to take an examination after ARRT processes your application for certification and registration. In the past, they were 90 days; in the future, they’ll be 365 days.
Earlier this year, our Computed Tomography (CT) certification and registration program became the first such program accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, the ARRT Radiography exam will refer to radiation measurements in the International System of Units (SI units) only.
