Computed Tomography (CT) Technologists are highly skilled professionals who use specialized computerized equipment to produce cross sectional images that aid radiologists in diagnosing disease and disorders. CT technologists must be knowledgeable of anatomy, physiology, patient care, communication skills, physics, equipment operation, procedure protocol and patient safety. The one year computed tomography 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 Computed Tomography (CT). This certificate program consists of classroom-based and hybrid (web-based) didactic courses as well as clinical education for the student. The clinical component is required to complete competency exams required to sit the ARRT CT post-primary certification exam.

Admissions Requirements: Must be a registered Radiologic Technologist (radiographer or radiation therapist): Registered Nuclear Medicine Technologist (ARRT or NMTCB); or be registry eligible.
