Internationally Educated Medical Radiation Technologists

Welcome to the CAMRT website for internationally educated medical radiation technologists (IEMRTs) wishing information on assessment of their credentials and eligibility to write the CAMRT entre-to-practice certification exams.

Readiness Self-Assessment Tools

To help the IEMRT in making a decision to live and work in Canada, the CAMRT has developed Readiness Self-Assessment Tools for IEMRTs. These are online tools that help the IEMRT assess if they are likely to meet requirements to practice in a Canadian context, and what the Canadian work environment looks like. The tools provide information and guide the IEMRT through a self- assessment for readiness to work in Canada.



How to Write a Competency-Based Exam

The CAMRT entry-to-practice certification exam is a competency-based exam. Emphasis is placed on the application of knowledge in the practice environment and exam questions are asked from this perspective.

An interactive online module has been developed as a new tool to tell exam candidates more about competency-based testing. The module provides the following information.

  • Becoming certified to practice in Canada
  • Competency-based education and testing
  • The value of competency-based learning as a model that meets the needs of the workplace
  • Sample exam questions that compare knowledge-based and competency-based questions
  • The development and scoring of national certification exams
  • Tips and strategies for writing the exam
  • An evaluation of the module
