Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Technologists are highly skilled professionals who use specialized computerized equipment to produce cross sectional images that aid radiologists in diagnosing disease and disorders. MRI technologists must be knowledgeable of anatomy, physiology, patient care, communication skills, physics, equipment operation, procedure protocol and patient safety. The one year magnetic resonance imaging certificate program is designed to provide advanced technical skills to graduates of an accredited radiography program who are also registered technologists. The program provides the advanced competency requirements needed to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) exam in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This certificate program consists of online didactic courses as well as clinical education for the student. The clinical component is required to complete competency exams required to sit the ARRT MRI post-primary certification exam.
