National Registration and Certification

Certification is the process of initially recognizing individuals who have satisfied certain standards within a profession. A person is certified by ARRT after graduating from an approved educational program, complying with the ethical and character standards, and passing a certification exam.

Registration is the annual procedure required to maintain registration of the certification. ARRT registrants are those who, having already fulfilled the requirements for initial certification, continue to meet the requirements of annual registration.
