American Registry of Radiologic Technologists Structured Education Requirements
Effective January 1, 2016, in order to take the Mammography Certification Exam, the ARRT will require documentation of structured education along with the required clinical experience requirements. Structured education may be in the form of formal education coursework completed at a college or university or equivalent to 16 CE hours of structured education. Candidates will need to document at least on CE credit or its equivalent of structured education at a college or university in each of the certification content categories. Both forms of structured education must meet the ARRT’s current CE guidelines. The Casper College program meets these requirements. If you are not working toward the Mammography certificate, you may take the Mammography Fundamentals online course to meet some of these requirements without completing the clinical education portion of the program.
Admission Requirement: Must be a registered Radiologic Technologist or registry eligible and pass the exam prior to the start of the program.
