Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT)

The RRT Examination consists of two parts:

  • The Written Registry Examination for Advanced Respiratory Therapists consists of 115 multiple-choice questions covering the recall, application, and analysis of clinical data, equipment and therapeutic procedures.
  • The Clinical Simulation Examination (CSE) currently consists of 10 separate patient management problems. The clinical setting and patient situation for each problem are designed to simulate reality and be relevant to the clinical practice of respiratory care.
