Track #1 is Didactic only and will not provide clinical space for enrolled students. Students will have the opportunity to meet every other week in a hybrid model that is online/remote using the WebEx platform for live instruction. 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 have the opportunity to meet every other week in a hybrid model that is online/remote using the WebEx platform for live instruction, and will also be placed into a clinical site for 12-16 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 hybrid/remote 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.
