R.I. Gen. Laws § 5-68.1-6

§ 5-68.1-6. Licensing by training and examination.

(a) Any individual desiring to become a licensed radiologic technologist shall make application to the board on a written form and in the manner that the board prescribes; shall pay all the required application fees; and shall furnish evidence to the board that the applicant:

(1) Has successfully completed a training program approved by the board; and

(2) Has passed the appropriate examination(s) given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board, or other national organization specified in rules and regulations adopted pursuant to this chapter.

(b) Graduate practice. Any graduate of a training program approved by the board who has filed a completed application (including all documents except for examination scores) for licensing shall be recognized, upon receiving a receipt from the director, as a graduate technologist for a period not to exceed ninety (90) days from the date on the application fee receipt.

(1) This receipt shall authorize the applicant to practice that branch of radiologic technology specified on the application until the results of the exam are distributed and acted upon by the board, but in no case shall the authorized period exceed ninety (90) days. During this authorized period, the applicant shall identify him or herself only as a “graduate technologist.”

(2) If the applicant fails to take the examination and receive a license, as specified in subsection (a), during this authorized ninety (90) day period or fails to pass the examination, all authorization to practice as a graduate technologist shall immediately become null and void.

(3) Authorization to practice as a graduate technologist shall only be granted by the board to an individual for a single period not to exceed ninety (90) days, and shall not be extended or renewed.
