Student Center

As an AARC student member, we want to ensure you have access to the tools, the resources, the benefits that will help you be the best you can be in your career.

Benefits for you

  • NBRC Discount—All AARC members get a one-time $40 discount on an NBRC exam (excludes CRT exam).

  • Reduced First Year Dues—If you pay your dues before your graduation and AARC expiration date, you can continue in the AARC for only $50 per year for your first year as a practicing respiratory therapist. You'll become an Active Member in the AARC at almost 1/2 the price. Do it online before graduation at Join or Renew. Have your member number handy.

    Check it Out! When you take advantage of these savings, it's almost like you'll be paying only $10 for your first year of full AARC membership.
