The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists®

Hunter’s Radiologic Technology program is recognized by The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. ARRT is the world’s largest organization offering credentials in medical imaging, interventional procedures, and radiation therapy. It certifies and registers technologists in a range of disciplines by overseeing and administering education, ethics, and examination requirements.

New York State Licensing

The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists® (ARRT) examination satisfies New York State’s licensing requirements to practice as a licensed radiologic technologist (x-ray tech) anywhere in the state. New York State licenses are issued by the New York State Department of Health upon passing the ARRT exam.

Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology

Hunter’s Radiologic Technology program has applied for Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) initial accreditation and is in the process of completing its initial self-study. JRCERT programmatic accreditation is awarded after a successful programmatic review and site visit. We anticipate that our accreditation site visit will take place in the second half of 2019.

In addition to recognition by Middle States, recognition by JRCERT also qualifies our program’s graduates for eligibility to apply for and take the certification exam for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

JRCERT does not conduct a site visit for a new program until the program has begun and its students are actually in clinic doing rotations.
