This Course Meets ARRT Education Requirements

Candidates for post-primary certification and registration must meet two sets of requirements: certification and registration by ARRT (except where noted) in an appropriate supporting discipline and completion of clinical experience requirements. Beginning in 2016, structured education requirements must also be complete. (Verbiage taken from ARRT Handbook)
This Comprehensive course meets both the structured education and clinical experience requirement.

** If you are a student who is working in CT or your job is allowing you to gain your clinical experience through cross-training, you will only need the didactic (classroom) portion of this program.
