Want to learn more about specific components of ARRT certification and registration?
To help certification candidates and Registered Technologists (R.T.s) better understand their role in earning and maintaining certification and registration, The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) has created a series of informative videos on a variety of topics. Just click on one of the images below to get started, and check back, as new videos are being added often.
When CQ/2011 was first announced in June 2007, the first individual who would be subject to its requirements was probably a high school junior who wasn't even sure where career plans might lead. He or she might become certified by ARRT in 2011 — for a period of 10 years, at the end of which, in 2021, they’ll have to document continued qualifications.
ARRT certifications awarded January 1, 2011, and thereafter will be time-limited to 10 years. Prior to the end of the 10-year period, the individual will be required to demonstrate continued qualifications in order to continue to hold the certification.
But, ARRT certifications that are awarded prior to January 1, 2011, and that are kept currently registered, will not be subject to Continued Qualifications requirements.
Here’s some information on the program that should answer your questions. Also, see the related news article " Much Ado About CQ."
