Overview

Were you educated abroad in Medical Radiological Technology (MRT) and now looking to establish your medical radiological technology career in Canada? The NAIT MRT Bridging program offers a flexible course of study to help you gain the knowledge and skills expected of radiographers in Canada.

This program is not intended for basic entry-level training or to be a full review program. It will help you apply your existing education to Canadian standards and help you write the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) examination for domestic certification.

MRT Bridging Program students will apply through the Alberta College of Medical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Technologists (ACMDTT) to determine readiness and eligibility. Applicants must present documentation that will enable the ACMDTT’s Registration Committee to assess education, language proficiency, work history and acquired clinical competencies.

For more information, visit the ACMDTT website at www.acmdtt.com. Following assessment, the Registration Committee will recommend courses, assessments and training to be completed by the applicant. These are offered through NAIT’s MRT Bridging Program.

Alternatively, if you are eligible to write the CAMRT national certification examination, then you may be admitted to the MRT Bridging Program. The program coordinator will recommend courses that help prepare you for that exam.

This Bridging Program allows new Canadians to transition more quickly into the Canadian labour market by targeting the specific needs of the applicant. The program is NOT intended for basic entry-level training or as a full review program.

The courses have continuous intakes so this offers great flexibility to the applicant. The time required for a student to complete his/her studies will depend on previous education, experience and competencies.  The program may range from six months to eighteen months.
