Important Note About ARDMS Credentials
The only means of obtaining an ARDMS credential is by examination. Required prerequisites must be met before an applicant can earn an ARDMS credential. Applicants may apply and take the SPI examination and the specialty examination in any order. However, once the first examination is passed (either the SPI or specialty), you are required to take and pass the second examination within five years of passing the first examination.
