What Is the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) Credential?

The Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) credential is the nationally recognized "standard of excellence" for respiratory care professionals that demonstrates competency of essential respiratory care knowledge, skills, and abilities. The RRT credential is administered by the National Board of Respiratory Care (NBRC). RRT Credentials must be maintained through continuing education or examination through the NBRC’s Continuing Competency Program.

The RRT credential is earned through a series of two examinations:

  • Therapist Multiple-Choice (TMC) Examination
  • Clinical Simulation Examination (CSE)

The TMC Examination evaluates the abilities of entry-level respiratory therapists necessary to enter into practice and determines eligibility for the Clinical Simulation Examination (CSE).

Career Outcomes

Individuals who earn and maintain a RRT credential may benefit from new career opportunities with higher salaries at high quality institutions.

Who Is Eligible?

Individuals who pass both the TMC and CSE examinations will receive the RRT credential. For more information on exam eligibility, please visit: The National Board for Resipiratory Care.
