About this Course

How this course works

Thank you for your interest in the AARC’s Exam Prep Course! Our goal is to give you the information you need to feel well-prepared to take the CRT or RRT written examinations.

How the course works

Once you have registered for AARC Exam Prep, we will send you a link to your personal NBRC storefront. You select and take one of the self-assessment exams. You and we will receive your results from the NBRC, so when you come back to Exam Prep, you will have a personal prescription of study guides waiting for you. The guides are videos recording by respiratory therapists from across the US.

Note: If you have purchased or taken the Self-Assessment Exams on the NBRC/AMP website, those are the same exams we are including in this course.

Once you feel ready, you can go back to the NBRC storefront and sign up for the post test. Once you take that test, you will be able to return here to see how much you improved, and to review any videos you would like to see again.

You will have one chance to take each self-assessment exam. If you already have your CRT and would like to focus on the RRT preparation, please sign up for the RRT pre-test first. If you have not earned either credential, you are most welcome to start with the CRT pre-test, finish the CRT post-test and then move on to the RRT pre-test and finally the RRT post-test.

And there’s still more!

In addition to your prescription, you have the ability to view all of the videos that were recorded for this course. If you wish to earn CRCE credits for your studying, you will be able to take an exam for each section of the matrix in Examination Central. The AARC exams are strictly for CRCE credit; they will not impact your prescription and their results won’t be shared with the NBRC.

We wish you all the best as you prepare for your credentialing exams!
