What is structured Education? And how many credits do I need?

When pursuing a credential using the post primary pathway, you must complete 16 hours of structured education that reflect the Examination Content Specifications for the discipline you're pursuing, and include at least one credit from each of the document's major content categories.
  • As per the ARRT®, you'll need to complete your structured education requirements within the 24 months before you submit your post primary application. After you finish each activity, you'll log in to your ARRT® account and use the post primary tool to document your structured education. You can also use your structured education activities to help fulfil your CE requirements.

What is continuous qualification requirements (CQR)? How many credits do I Need? And where can I get them?

  • Continuing Qualifications Requirements (CQR) is a process implemented by ARRT to help you assess and improve your knowledge, and refresh your understanding of areas in which you might not currently practice.
  • As outlined by the ARRT®, you’ll complete CQR once every 10 years for each ARRT® credential you’ve earned since 2011. If you’re a Registered Radiologist Assistant, you’ll fulfil CQR for that discipline too, regardless of when you earned it. You’ll have three years to finish the process, and the ARRT® will notify you when your compliance window opens. At that point, you’ll work through CQR in three easy steps.
    • Professional Profile: You’ll identify the types of procedures you perform and how often you perform them. You’ll then see how your experience compares to that of others in your discipline.
    • Structured Self-Assessment: The Structured Self-Assessment (SSA) will simply help you identify any gaps in knowledge related to your credentials. You’ll have options for taking your SSA at a Pearson VUE professional center or online at home with a remote proctor monitoring you through a webcam.
    • Prescribed CE: If your SSA reveals any areas for learning opportunities the ARRT® will prescribe specific Continuing Education activities for you to complete. In most cases, those prescribed CE activities will also count towards your biennium CE requirements.
  • For more information please visit the ARRT® website. https://www.arrt.org/
