 ARRT to Open RPA to R.R.A. Pathway


For a limited time, ARRT will offer Radiology Practitioner Assistants (RPAs) a modified eligibility pathway to earn Registered Radiologist Assistant (R.R.A.) credentials. This pathway will open in the near future and will be available through December 31, 2020.

RPA to R.R.A. Requirements

To earn R.R.A. credentials using the temporary RPA eligibility pathway, you must meet the following requirements by December 31, 2020:

  • Be certified as an RPA by the Certification Board for Radiology Practitioner Assistants or have graduated from a Radiology Practitioner Assistant educational program that is based in an educational institution accredited by an ARRT-approved mechanism
  • Be certified and registered with ARRT in Radiography
  • Have at least one year of acceptable clinical experience in radiography, which must be completed after you’ve earned your ARRT credential in Radiography (Clinical experience may be earned concurrent to a radiologist assistant educational program, but cannot be satisfied by the program)
  • Have a baccalaureate degree or graduate degree from an institution accredited by an ARRT-approved mechanism
  • Meet ARRT’s ethic’s requirements
  • Pass ARRT’s R.R.A. examination

The ARRT Rules and Regulations state that candidates must establish eligibility within five years after completing an educational program (for those completing a program prior to 2013) or within three years after completing an educational program (for those completing a program after 2012). However, we will waive this requirement for those using the temporary RPA eligibility pathway.
