Get your career started with a Certificate in Radiology

Many radiological professionals working in hospitals and clinics across the US carry a certificate in radiology and its many imaging technologies, including x-ray, ultrasound and nuclear medicine. Unlike associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs, certificate programs in radiological technology are often offered by hospitals through their own facility programs. Certificates are also less expensive and easier to find than related degree programs.

There are 37 states that hold ARRT-administered exams for state licensing purposes. These are:

Job Prospects

While some radiological technology professions may only require on-the-job training, it is very important to earn a certificate whenever possible. Not only does it help with job security, it is also an industry standard, and most employers require it. For many aspiring radiological technologists who have already earned a bachelor’s degree in a related field, a certificate provides the hands-on training needed to jump-start their career. In addition, as mentioned above some states also require radiology professionals to pass a certification exam. Earning a certificate will go a long way in opening up job prospects, and can be done relatively cheaply and quickly too – some certificate programs can be completed in as little as 6 months.
