Test Prep/Mock Exam Questions
No question in this Test Prep System is known to appear on the licensing exam exactly as it appears in our System. And there may be questions on the licensing exam that seem unfamiliar, but our original questions cover test eligible material as specified by the ARRT.
Do I qualify to take this course?
The BASIC COURSE and the COMPREHENSIVE COURSE provides specific instruction in the use of x-rays in performing images as described above. We assume the student is licensed, certified, and/or experienced in health care and understands the basics of providing patient care. If this doesn’t describe your background, then your employer/supervisor will need to agree to provide that knowledge and those skills.
Who can be my supervisor?
The qualifications for the supervisor vary by state. Typically, the supervisor is a fully certified radiographer, R.T., a physician or chiropractor. Some states permit a physician assistant or a licensed limited radiographer to supervise as well.
Will I be considered proficient after taking this course and passing the exam?
The BASIC COURSE provides fundamental content and the clinical requirement encourages you to practice the principles. Proficiency increases with experience. The COMPREHENSIVE COURSE leads the student towards passing a state exam. These tests are designed to measure minimum competency and proficiency increases with experience. Additionally, many states require a Limited Radiographer to participate in continuing education.
