ARRT TO STOP ISSUING PAPER CREDENTIAL CARDS DEC. 31, 2020
ARRT will stop issuing paper credential cards on Dec. 31, 2020—after we’ve sent the final paper credential cards to all R.T.s during the renewal process. The change makes it more difficult for people who aren’t R.T.s to represent themselves as such, and it helps us continue progressing toward our goal of moving from paper-based to electronic communications.
HOW TO CONFIRM YOUR RENEWAL
After you renew, your ARRT online account will show your updated status within a few days. Or check our Verify Credentials Online directory. We update it daily, listing R.T.s who are certified and registered.
We don’t display credentials of people who recently took examinations until the score reports are final.
HOW TO VERIFY SOMEONE’S CREDENTIALS
Use our Verify Credentials directory on the ARRT website. The directory allows employers, patients, and others to determine whether someone is certified and registered by ARRT—and in what disciplines. While some R.T.s opt out of the online directory, a new online service option at the Verify Credentials page is faxed verification on ARRT letterhead. All R.T.s are included in this option.
The process is quick and easy. It also helps ensure that only R.T.s present themselves as such.
If you need a printed copy:
- Download the information from the Verify Credentials online directory.
- Or use the request form to request an email or a faxed verification.
Although you can request a fax verification on ARRT letterhead through the Verify Credentials section of our website, we no longer accept those requests by phone.
