Charles Lowe does NOT offer the Certified Radiographer Exam. Taking a Certified Radiographer Exam is a process to obtain a Certified Radiographer Card or "state" card. Exams are given at various dates and locations at specific states. Exams choices are gamma only, X-ray only or Both. The exam questions are solely radiation safety related. In order to obtain a "state" card, the individual must pass the exam with a 70% or better and obtain the required on-the-job-training hours....RAM only (200 hours) and X-ray only (120 hours)...with a combined hours of 320 hours for the BOTH exam and card.
ASNT offers a Certified Radiographer Exam called the ASNT IRRSP Exam. Required training hours are RAM 300 hours, X-ray 200 hours, for a combined hours requirement of 500 hours. Plus, a practical exam is required.
