At ARRT, education is part of our equation for excellence. We rely on accreditation agencies (sometimes called mechanisms) to determine the quality of educational institutions, their programs, and their courses. Below is a list of ARRT-approved accreditation mechanisms. 

What Candidates Need To Know About ACCREDITATION

As part of the requirements for ARRT certification and registration, candidates need to complete an ARRT-approved educational program and an academic degree (associate's or higher) that is accredited by one of the mechanisms listed on this page. They must complete their programs and degrees on or after the dates specified in the chart. (Those are the dates on which the accrediting mechanisms were recognized by USDE or CHEA.) They only need to earn an academic degree if they complete their professional education on or after Jan.1, 2015. 

Candidates and R.T.s also have the option of taking an academic course to meet ARRT education requirements. The academic institution offering the course must be accredited by one of the agencies on this page.
