Annual Renewal of Certification and Registration
R.T.s must annually renew certification and registration in order to remain
qualified to use the R.T. designation.
Upon initial certification and registration, individuals are certified and registered through the end of their
next birth month (except when that period is less than two months, in which case certification and
registration continues through the birth month of the following year).
The annual renewal deadline is 12 midnight at the end of the last day of the R.T.'s
General Eligibility Requirements
Successful renewal of certification and registration requires that the individual has been and remains
in compliance with the
ARRT Rules and Regulations
ARRT Standards of Ethics
and that they have fulfilled their CE responsibilities as defined in the
Continuing Education Requirements.
Renewing a post-primary discipline certification and registration requires the applicant to maintain
certification and registration in at least one of the supporting categories required to establish
eligibility for initial certification and registration.

Biennial Continuing Education (CE) Reporting
CE reporting is a mandatory requirement for renewal of certification and registration every two years.
A registrant's two-year CE reporting period, or biennium, begins on the first day
of the birth month and extends for two years to the end of the month before the
birth month. All CE credits to be reported must be completed between these dates,
so credits earned in one biennium cannot be carried forward into the next biennium.

Requirements in addition to biennial CE requirements. Certifications and registrations earned prior to January
