All examinations are administered by way of computer based testing. All individuals wishing to sit for either of these ARRT examinations in Tennessee must apply with Limited Scope Testing (LST).

  • Complete the LST application using ARRT guidelines for acceptable identification.

  • Pay the $125 application fee by check or online, mail or fax the application with a copy of the course completion certificate for each exam. Your application will not be approved without them.
  • LST reviews your application and determines if you are eligible for the ARRT Limited Scope Examination.
