MRI / DMS Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement might be a good option if you want to earn ARRT MRI or DMS certification and registration, but can’t because you:

  1. Completed a professional educational program in MRI or DMS that isn’t accredited by an agency ARRT recognizes.
  2. You have not earned an associate degree or higher (Candidates who completed their program of study after December 31, 2014 are subject to the Associates Degree requirement).
  3. Became ineligible for certification and registration as a result of three unsuccessful examination attempts within three years
  4. Became ineligible for certification and registration because your three -year exam eligibility time expired

If you fit one of those situations, Advanced Placement—in which you enter an educational program at a point beyond the normal entry level—is the program for you.

  2.

What Courses Will I Be Required to Take?

  1. If you do not demonstrate sufficient didactic knowledge in any of the core courses, you must take and complete the entire course to gain the appropriate knowledge.
  2. One semester of clinical practicum. Competencies must be proved in all required clinical procedures as defined by ARRT’s clinical competency requirements and any College program requirements above and beyond those of ARRT.
    1. a. If student does not pass all required competencies, student will be required to take additional externship hours.
  3. All candidates, regardless of degree status, are required to fulfill the general education requirements of the MRI and DMS Programs. Transfer credit is available for general education courses if course is equivalent in academic content, credit hours and quality of course.
