internet_click - usedArizona Western College (AWC) has launched an online-only program for certified radiologic technologists to increase their skills and position their employers for full compliance with new national and state regulations regarding computed tomography (CT).

The program was developed in response to the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) January 2016 requirement for 16 hours of academic education in CT. AWC’s program is suited to bring current technologists up to compliance in less than a year.

The program includes courses such as “The Physics of CT,” “Positioning Protocols and Contrast Media,” “Cross Sectional Anatomy,” and “Cardiac CT Planar and Volumetric Post Processing.” ARRT-registered technologists who are not currently working in CT must also complete three clinical courses.

The program is entirely online and available to students across the country. Out-of-state clinical students must locate their clinical sites prior to the start of the program, and AWC faculty will arrange clinical contracts.

AWC is a public, two-year college that serves a 10,000 square mile district spread over two counties. It offers certificates, professional development, and transfer degrees in more than 90 programs offered in 10 locations.
