Resources for Educators

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Because educators shape today’s students into tomorrow’s ultrasound professionals, ARDMS continually looks for ways to support their work. Below, you’ll find a full list of the current programs and resources we offer.

 School Report

​An ARDMS School Report provides you with a list of candidate names who took and passed an examination, the examination each of the candidates took during the dates specified and the credential earned by each listed candidate.


To request a free school report for a current program and programs that you have completed in the last three years, visit our School Report page and follow the directions provided.

 Paperless Application Program - Prerequisite 2

​We now offer a Paperless Application Program to all students that apply under the Prerequisite 2 pathway. This exciting program includes time-saving benefits for CAAHEP and CMA Program Directors.


As a Program Director, you can submit students’ verification documentation electronically, rather than by mail, and enjoy on-demand access to ARDMS School Reports for students who use the program. For steps on how to access the Paperless Application, click here.
