Certification Eligibility: ARRT Pre-application Review
Certification as a radiologic technologist requires that a graduate pass an examination sponsored by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). All candidates for certification must comply with the Rules of Ethics contained in the ARRT Standards of Ethics. The Rules of Ethics are standards of acceptable professional conduct for all registered technologists and candidates, intended to promote the protection, safety, and comfort of patients. Registered technologists and candidates who engage in or permit others to engage in any of the conduct outlined in the Rules of Ethics have violated those rules and are subject to sanctions. One violation is conviction of any crime (misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor, or felony), with the exception of speeding and parking violations. Alcohol and drug-related violations must be reported. “Conviction” as used in this provision includes a criminal proceeding wherein a finding or verdict of guilt is made or returned, but
- the adjudication of guilt is either withheld, deferred, or not entered; or
- the sentence is suspended or stayed; or
- the individual enters a plea of guilty or no contest (nolo contendere); or
- there is a pre-trial diversion.
