Detailed document: ARRT Structured Education Requirements for Mammography 

Training requirements must have been completed during the 24-months immediately preceding the application date for the ARRT certification exam. For more details please review this document. Mammography Clinical Experience Requirements

Candidates are requested to use the Mammography Clinical Experience Documentation Form online to record the performance of each procedure and must keep this form for at least 24 months after the application for certification is submitted.  To start documenting procedures, log in to My ARRT Info

Additionally, candidates must complete the verification section of the ARRT application, attesting to completion of the requirements. The ARRT conducts audits of some applications for certification. Submitting false documentation to the ARRT as part of the application process is a violation of the ARRT Standards of Ethics and may result in revocation of eligibility for certification in all categories, including those already held.
