The CAMRT has produced a number of documents and resources to give an overview, and to assist candidates and assessors throughout the Advanced Practice Registered Technologist (Radiation Therapy) (“APRT(T)”) Certification process.
The APRT(T) Certification Policies and Procedures Handbook provides candidates interested in APRT(T) certification with an overview of the process and an understanding of the assessments that take place throughout. It also explains the overall goals and requirements, and provides outlines of the information required for a candidate to navigate the APRT(T) Certification process.
The APRT(T) Competency Profile is a document that describes the scope and level of practice expected of an advanced practitioner. This nationally validated document forms the basis of all assessment phases of the certification process.
