Curriculum Sheet

Two Tracks for Prospective Students

Track #1

Track #1 is Didactic only and will not provide clinical space for enrolled students.  Students will meet once during each week for 4 hours.  This track will serve the Diagnostic X-ray, Nuclear Medicine Technologist and Radiation Therapy population that wants to advance in the Field of Computed Tomography, giving these technologists a solid foundation of knowledge and certification recognition to help pursue their career advancement.

Track #2

Track #2 has both a Didactic and Clinical portion to the program.  Enrolled students will meet once during each week for 4 hours and will also be placed into a clinical site for 16 hours each week.  If you successfully complete the didactic and clinical courses, you will meet the educational and clinical experience requirements to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist's (ARRT) post primary certification examination in CT.

The program is a two-semester didactic face-to-face program with an optional clinical practicum. This certificate program will include all the content category requirements within the ARRT Computed Tomography Examination for Patient Care and Safety, Imaging Procedures, Physics and Instrumentation.
