G. Additional information:
• Background checks requirements for licensing and background restrictions for working in the occupation: Background checks for licensing and working are variable. Essentially, any violation that isn’t a traffic ticket must be reported to the ARRT (licensing). The ARRT ethics review committee will examine all violations and determine if any action, such as barring a graduate from taking the exam, is warranted. The ARRT is a federal registration so a student would also have to report to their state licensing body as well. Usually, if the ARRT has cleared them, they will have no issue obtaining the state license. The same variability would be true of employment where background check issues would be subject to the policies of the facility.
• Other requirements needed: For the ARRT a student must complete an associate’s degree (in anything) and a professional education component. Both of these must be from a school accredited by an agency recognized by the ARRT. Work requirements would again be subject to the policy of the facility, i.e. standing for long periods of time or being able to lift a certain amount of weight.
