This information is for internationally trained medical radiation technologists (MRTs) and electroneurophysiology technologists (ENPs) who seek to be registered to work in Alberta and are not registered to practice in another Canadian province or territory.
The following steps are required for registration at the College:
The College’s Registration Information Guide for Internationally Educated Medical Radiation and Electroneurophysiology Technologists outlines the assessment process and lists the documentation required to complete your application.
Submit the Application for Registration: Assessment for Substantial Equivalence and pay the non-refundable assessment fee of $300 (CAD) for each specialty in which you are applying.
Submit all required documents and applicable supporting documents for assessment by the Registration committee.
These are necessary for assessing your substantial equivalence. Staff may present your file for Committee review upon receiving most of these documents.
These documents are useful in assessing your substantial equivalence but not essential to the Committee’s ability to proceed with the assessment process. You are encouraged to support your application with these documents unless it is unreasonable to do so.
- Copy of diploma and/or degree
- Evidence of continuing education
- Any other additional information you wish to support your application
**If your name is different than indicated on other documents, please provide us with proof of name change by way of a government-issued document.
Your application will be forwarded by the College to the Registration Committee once your application is complete and you will receive a confirmation email that includes the next steps.
Registration Committee members are appointed by Council. They are responsible for considering applications for registration upon referral by the Registrar, and for making decisions with respect to applications for registration upon referral by the Registrar in accordance with the Health Professions Act and the Medical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Technologists Profession Regulation.
