Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT)

The Therapist Multiple-Choice (TMC) Examination objectively measures essential knowledge, skills, and abilities required of respiratory therapists at entry into practice. Passing the TMC Examination and wearing the CRT badge of distinction signals to employers, colleagues and patients that you are committed to excellence in respiratory care. Additionally, all 49 states that regulate the practice of respiratory care use the CRT or RRT credential as the basis for state licensure.

The TMC Examination also determines your eligibility for the Clinical Simulation Examination (CSE) which is required for the RRT credential. For more information, click or tap on a topic below, or visit our TMC Exam FAQs.
