Adult Critical Care Specialty (ACCS)

The Adult Critical Care Specialty (ACCS) Examination objectively measures the knowledge and skills of respiratory therapists in this specialty area. It goes above and beyond general respiratory care activities to focus specifically on competencies that are unique to adult critical care. Therefore, wearing the RRT-ACCS badge of distinction signals to employers, colleagues and patients that your skills are highly specialized.

The ACCS Examination is available for respiratory care professionals who have proven their dedication to excellence by earning the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) credential. For more information, click or tap on a topic below, or visit our ACCS Exam FAQs.
