ARRT Structured Education

Structured education is a vital component of certification and registration using the postprimary pathway. Its purpose is to help you master the discipline-specific knowledge you’ll need to obtain your credential.

When pursuing a credential using the postprimary pathway, you must complete 16 hours of structured education. Currently, these education credits must pertain only to the discipline you’re pursuing. Beginning Jan. 1, 2018, however, your structured education will have to both:

  • Reflect the Examination Content Specifications for the discipline you’re pursuing 
  • Include at least one credit from each of the document’s major content categories

Structured education activities must meet the same criteria as those that comply with your biennial CE requirements. In other words, a RCEEM or RCEEM+ must approve the activity, and/or the activity must be an academic course from an institution accredited by an ARRT-recognized agency. You’ll need to complete your structured education requirements within the 24 months before you submit your postprimary application.

After you finish each activity, you'll log in to your ARRT account and use our postprimary tool to document your structured education. We typically review and approve submissions within two business days. Occasionally, additional time is necessary.
