How long will it take?

This is not a paperback or hardcover book. Nothing will come in the mail. This means you can start right now. Our courses follow ARRT* Rules and are approved for the number of credits based on the amount of time it takes the reviewing body (ASRT) to read the entire reading material word for word and cover to cover. This time does not include taking the required post test. These requirements are followed for all reading material for all CE providers.
1 Credit = 1 Continuing Education Unit (CEU) = 1 Education Hour = 1 Credit Hour = 1 Hour of Reading
Many students are able to skim the material faster and search for the post test questions much more quickly than that, but the number of credits is a guideline for how many hours it will take to complete the course. 

How many questions are in the test?

In order to get credit, the post test must follow ARRT* CE rules. The rules have been recently updated in 2016. This means that there are 8 questions for each 1 credit to a maximum of 120 questions. So, a 1 credit course has 8 questions, a 4 credit course has 24 questions, and so on, but anything over 15 credits has 120 questions.  Again, this is the standard which all accredited courses must follow from any provider.
