Graduates are eligible to sit for the certification examination given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and must pass to become Registered Technologists. However, the ARRT has a policy of not allowing persons who are convicted of a felony or gross misdemeanor to take the national certifying examination. Because of this policy, there may be an inability of those with such a conviction to work in the profession.
