ARRT regulations allow a total of three attempts at an exam. There are no additional fees if a test has to be re-taken.
Category A and A+?
Category A and A+ activities have been reviewed and approved by an ARRT-Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism (RCEEM). A RCEEM is a quality-control mechanism for CE activities.
What is Category A credit?
Category A activities are those evaluated and approved by a Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism (RCEEM). Because the ASRT is a RCEEM, any activity approved by the ASRT is awarded Category A or A+ credit. When choosing your CE activities, look for Category A or A+ approval.
In addition, a few other activities receive Category A status regardless of whether they have been approved by a RCEEM. They include:
Official certification in advanced cardiac life support, pediatric advanced life support, instructor or instructor trainer courses if approved by a RCEEM or with a valid card from the Red Cross, the American Heart Association or the American Health and Safety Institute. Credits are awarded on the date of certification or recertification and are limited to six credits per biennium. The ARRT no longer accepts basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for Category A credit. Basic CPR is generally considered a job responsibility and not a continuing education activity.
Approved academic course. The Registry defines an "approved academic course" as a formal course of study offered by an accredited postsecondary educational institution in the biologic sciences, physical sciences, radiologic sciences, health and medical sciences, communication (verbal and written), mathematics, computers or education methodology and certain social science courses, such as psychology and sociology.
Academic courses not accepted for Category A CE credit include classes in astronomy, geology, geography, history, literature, political science, fine arts, music, philosophy and religion.
What is Category A+ credit?
Category A+ credit is awarded to CE activities that meet the content criteria for registered radiologist assistants. Category A+ CE materials must be related to one or more clinical activities in the role delineation of the R.R.A., and the activity must be approved by an organization recognized by the ARRT as an A+ CE evaluation mechanism. There are currently three RCEEM+ organizations recognized by the ARRT: the ASRT, the Radiological Society of North America and the Society of Nuclear Medicine - Technologist Section.
R.T.s may complete A+ activities to satisfy part or all of their required CE credits each biennium.
Can I purchase the same course more than once?
Activities may be available in multiple formats or from different CE sponsors. ARRT regulations state that an individual may not repeat a self-learning CE activity for credit if it was reported in the same CE biennium.

Do you report my CE activity to ARRT?
We do not report your credits to the ARRT. At the end of a biennium or reporting period, the ARRT will provide the technologist with a CE report form along with the application for renewal of registration. The technologist will be required to list the completed CE activities on the CE report form. When the CE report form is received in the ARRT office, a random sample of registrants will be selected and asked to provide copies of documentation of CE participation. This documentation is the certificate of completion we send to you. When you receive your certificate of completion from X-RAY CE, be sure to keep it in a safe place in case you are audited by the ARRT.

What do "DIRECT" and "INDIRECT" mean on my certificate of completion?
Your Certificate of Completion for ASRT CE Activities report may have these terms in some activity titles. These terms indicate whether or not the course is directly related to the use of ionizing radiation, a distinction required for Texas licensure CE requirements.
