ARRT Structured Education Requirements

Beginning January 1, 2016, candidates for post-primary certification and registration are required to document completion of structured education related to the content specifications.

Educational activities must meet the following requirements:

  • the total number of hours must equal at least 16; and
  • at least one hour of structured education  must be related to each of the following content areas:

1.     Patient Care and Safety

2.     Imaging Procedures

3.     Physics and Instrumentation

The verbiage above is pulled directly from the ARRT's Structured Education and Clinical Experience Requirements. The course includes the current ARRT content specifications for MRI and includes at least one hour of structured education in patient care and safety, imaging procedures, and physics and instrumentation.

You must watch the entire simulcast session. If you log in 15 minutes after the simulcast has started, you will not be issued a certificate. The system we use monitors interactivity and will provide us with a report.
