    Your tuition for the Medical Assisting with X-Ray Tech (Limited Scope) program includes the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) exam.(1) Remington College also pays for your first attempt at the Limited Scope of Practice in Radiography Examination (LSE) exam and the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) Radiologic Technology Licensure (RTL) application fee.(1) Passing the LSE and obtaining licensure are required in order to practice as a Limited Licensed Technologist in Arkansas. Remington College requires that you pass your CCMA exam in order to successfully complete your final academic course, and once you graduate, you can take the LSE exam.(1)

    The Limited Licensed Technologist License is offered through the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH). The State of Arkansas requires that individuals who use radioactive materials or medical equipment emitting or detecting ionizing radiation on human beings for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes, be licensed to do so.

    The Limited Licensed Technologist License is for individuals who have passed the Limited Scope Examination in either chest, extremity, skull/sinus, spine, and/or podiatry. These individuals are only allowed to perform radiographic exams in the categories they have passed in the Limited Scope Examination.

    • Applicants must first apply with the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) Radiologic Technology Licensure (RTL) Program to take the Limited Scope of Practice in Radiography Examination (LSE). The LSE is administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Remington College graduates should be prepared to take the following components of the exam:
