How ARRT Develops Exams and Assessments

ARRT uses a multi-step process to create our exams and assessments. Learn more about who creates the questions, how we determine what appears on each exam, and how we set passing scores.


Like many health care credentialing organizations, ARRT limits the duration of your certification and registration. That’s why we’ve developed ways of reassessing your knowledge at reasonable milestones in your practice. Learn about the purposes behind CQR and find out whether—and when—you’re required to complete the process.


After you've watch our overview video, you'll be ready to take a closer look at the three steps of CQR: the professional profile, the structured self-assessment, and prescribed continuing education. This "in-depth look" video goes into detail about each stage of the process and what to expect along the way.

ARRT Ethics Requirements

Patients deserve care from professionals who can be trusted to do the right things, no matter the situation. Patients should expect that the person performing their exam, procedure, or treatment is taking the proper precautions and making conscientious decisions to keep them safe. Through this video, learn more about ethics: what it means to you, to the patients you’ll serve throughout your R.T. career, and to employers in the health care field. See how ethics relates to ARRT’s model for certification and registration and to overall excellence in the profession.


We take the confidentiality of our examinations very seriously. Be aware of the potential consequences of violating either the candidate agreement on your application form or the nondisclosure agreement that precedes your exam at the test center.
