The Computed Tomography program is designed to provide the working Radiologic Technologist with the theoretical background and documented clinical experience necessary to sit for the Computed Tomography registry examination offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).* The certificate is based on the curriculum suggested by the American Society for Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and the clinical standards required by the ARRT. Required didactic components will be offered as well as optional clinical components based on student need. The didactic component of the curriculum will be delivered both on-line using Blackboard and in a classroom setting with lectures and discussion. The clinical component will be gained in an array of clinical affiliate sites.
For students who wish to pursue an A.A.S. degree in Radiography or the Certificate in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), please refer to the Programs of Study page for further information.
* CCBC does not guarantee that clinical students will complete all requirements for the ARRT exam.
School of Health Professions Policies
Students in the School of Health Professions are expected to conduct themselves according to an honor code; exhibit professional behavior; communicate effectively in English; provide proof of health insurance, immunizations, American Heart Association CPR (BLS for Providers), and a tuberculosis (TB) test; and submit to a criminal background check and drug testing. Students are expected to pay the costs associated with these requirements.
Applications for all School of Health Professions programs, except Dental Hygiene and Physician Assistant, are processed in a Central Application Service called CCBC CAS. The link to the CAS and the application instructions are located in the program admissions packet at the School of Health Professions website. You will need a CCBC student ID number and a CCBC student account password to complete the application. If you have questions about the CCBC CAS process, contact the School of Health Professions Admissions Office at (443) 840-1989 or read the FAQ selections at the bottom of each page inside the CAS application.
Upon successful completion of this certificate, students will be able to:
- apply knowledge and skills from the biological, physical, social, and behavioral sciences to perform Computed Tomography;
- explain how to produce detailed cross-sectional anatomy images that can be used to diagnose disease and disorders; and
- describe the skills necessary to perform as an entry-level Computed Tomography technologist.
