§ 25.223. Applications for examination.

 (a)  A person may apply to take any of the following examinations by securing an application from the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs, and by submitting the application accompanied by the required fee to Health Boards, Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs, Post Office Box 2649, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 17105-2649:

   (1)  ARRT Examination in Radiography.

   (2)  ARRT Examination in Radiation Therapy Technology.

   (3)  ARRT Examination in Nuclear Medicine Technology.

   (4)  ARRT Limited Examination in Radiography.

   (5)  ARRT Limited Examination in Radiography—Skull and Sinuses.

 (b)  An application for the ARRT examinations in radiography, radiation therapy technology and nuclear medicine technology may be filed directly with ARRT. However, ARRT is a private certifying body and may require the satisfaction of minimum education and training criteria for certification purposes. An examination application may not be filed with ARRT if the applicant wishes to take the ARRT Limited Examination in Radiography or the ARRT Limited Examination in Radiology—Skull and Sinuses, or if the applicant does not qualify for or desire private certification of competence to perform the radiologic procedures covered by the other ARRT certification examinations. Alternatively, an application shall be filed with ARRT and not with the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs if the applicant desires to not only perform radiologic procedures as authorized in §  25.222 (relating to auxiliary personnel performing radiologic procedures), but also desires certification by ARRT in the field of radiologic procedures covered by the examination.
