Information Regarding Certification

For Your Information

The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) assesses the ethical standard of all applicants to complete the certification test. The website is www.arrt.org. As a portion of those ethical standards, each individual requesting to take the credentialing test must report the following to ARRT:

Convictions, criminal proceedings or military court-martials as described below: (excluding juvenile)

  1. Conviction of a crime, including a felony, a gross misdemeanor or a misdemeanor with the sole exception of speeding and parking violations. All alcohol and/or drug related violations must be reported
  2. Criminal proceeding where a finding or verdict of guilt is made or returned but the adjudication of guilt is either withheld or not entered, or a criminal proceeding where the individual enters a plea of guilty or nolo contendere.
  3. Military court-martials that involve substance abuse, any sex-related infractions, or patient-related infractions.

The ARRT has the power to deny any credentialing application based on the above information. Passing admission to the program through background check verification will NOT GUARANTEE acceptance by the ARRT.
