ARRT is seeking public opinion on reopening the RPA to RRA pathway
The ARRT Board of Trustees are considering temporarily reopening the eligibility pathway that grants RPAs certified by the CBRPA eligibility to participate in ARRT's RRA examination-provided that all other professional education eligibility requirements are met.The ARRT Board will take comments until June 3, 2016 and will rule on the reopening the pathway at the July ARRT Board of Trustee's meeting.
This change only affects the requirement that candidates must apply to ARRT within five years of graduating from an educational program (before 2013) or within three years of graduating (2013 or later). The applicant will still have to meet ARRT's other education requirements, and the applicant must pass the ARRT exam.
If you have graduated from an RPA educational program, and you haven't previously applied to ARRT for certification and registration as an R.R.A., you may be eligible to do so through Dec. 31, 2020.
If you applied to ARRT in the past, you are not eligible for this reopened pathway unless you re-establish educational eligibility by completing an RA or advanced placement program.
