ACCREDITATION / CERTIFICATION INFORMATION DISCLOSURE

Applying for institutional or programmatic accreditation through an established and recognized accrediting agency is a voluntary process. Obtaining accreditation demonstrates that an institution is in compliance with recognized standards of education. AIMS Education is institutionally accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools and the Commission on Secondary Schools of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Accreditation for programs is not mandatory, but in some cases programmatic accreditation will permit graduates to take credentialing exams immediately upon graduation.

Registration or certification requirements for national exams are stipulated by the respective agencies and are subject to variation without notice to AIMS Education. Therefore AIMS Education cannot promise eligibility for graduates to take certification exams. In addition, the content covered on registry examinations is entirely in the hands of the respective agency and AIMS Education cannot guarantee success for its students. However, AIMS Education will offer assistance and guidance to students who are planning to sit for a certification exam.

On January 1, 2015, the requirements for certification and registration through ARRT changed significantly. Please visit www.arrt.org/certification for more detailed information regarding both current and future certification requirements.
