The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)

ARRT Exam Results

The NMI passing rate for first time examinees on the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) exam for the previous five years (2008-2012) is 96 percent.


Individuals not successful on the first attempt may have taken the exam a second time and passed or passed the NMTCB exam and chose not to retake the ARRT exam.


Upon successful completion of the NMI program, all students are eligible to apply to the NMTCB to take the national certification exam in nuclear medicine technology. Students may or may not be eligible to take the ARRT certification exam, depending on patient load, degree achieved and clinical competencies completed. The ARRT has specific clinical competency requirements that may not be met by some clinical facilities, depending on patient load. Eligibility requirements for ARRT certification in nuclear medicine technology will — effective January 1, 2015 — call for candidates to have earned an associate (or more advanced) degree from an accrediting agency recognized by ARRT.
