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:
- Completed a professional educational program in MRI or DMS that isn’t accredited by an agency ARRT recognizes.

- Became ineligible for certification and registration as a result of three unsuccessful examination attempts within three years
- 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.
