Certification and re-certification in Industrial Radiography, is a two-step process. First you must submit the Exam application and fee. Once you pass the exam, you then would submit the certification application and fee.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Illinois Governor Pritzker issued Executive Order No. 26 and No. 33, to assist those with expiring State of Illinois Industrial Radiographer Certifications who were denied a testing option for renewal. The Agency will issue 90 day extension letters for March and April expirations.

The COVID-19 situation has also made travel and gatherings of large numbers of people inadvisable. Based on recommendations from state and federal authorities, we are canceling future radiography certification exams and will not be accepting applications until further notice. Applications for certification will continue to be processed without interruption.

We will continually update our website as additional information and testing options become available.

  • For Exam please read the following instructions:
    Exams will be held at a facility in Des Plaines and/or a state facility in Springfield. All exam applicants will receive communication with directions to the exam site three to four weeks prior to the exam date. Please click here to view the listing of dates and locations to select your choice of test site and date. All exam applications, must be received 35 calendar days prior to the test date selected. *Exams are canceled due to COVID-19, until further notice.

  • For Certification, please read the following instructions:
    For New Certifications, the Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) is required to sign off for the minimal work experience on the application.

You may fax or email the application to:
Fax: 217-785-9946

After faxing or emailing the application and any other documents required for Trainee or Reciprocity, “DO NOT” mail the application or anything else. It will no longer be necessary to do so, unless it is requested by the Agency.

After the Agency has received either application, applicants will receive an email with a certification number and link to login and pay by credit card.

Once logged-in, the screen will display the applicant’s (profile) name, address, email and status, with an ability to update or add an address or email. You will also see “Make Payment” button. This will take you to JetPay screen to pay with your credit card. When this is filled and submitted, it will bring you back to your profile screen and you will see the application payment.

After payment is received, the Agency will review the application and process according to application type. Examinees will receive detailed information via email and Certified Radiographers should receive their card in the mail within 3 weeks.
