In order to become a radiologic technologist in the state of Oregon, the applicant must first be currently certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (AART). This certification indicates that the applicant has met a nationally recognized standard of competence for radiologic technologists. The state of Oregon accepts this national standard as the state’s standard of competence as well. In order to earn this certification, the student must first graduate from an accredited program.
The AART requires that radiologic tech schools in Oregon be accredited by an acceptable accrediting body. This will ensure that the program meets the standards for both classroom and clinical education in radiologic technology. These accrediting bodies include, but are not limited to, the Joint Review Committee on Educational Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) and Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology (JRCNMT). To see a list of programs approved by the ARRT, please contact the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
Once the student has satisfactorily completed the approved education program, then s/he may sit for the certification examination given by the ARRT. Once the student has completed, and successfully passed the ARRT certification examination, and complies with the educational and ethical requirements of the ARRT, then s/he will be considered An ARRT-certified Radiologic Technologist, and will then be eligible for licensure by the state of Oregon.
