1-year PET/CT Certificate Program
Established in 2006, this is the first formal PET/CT Certificate program curriculum in the nation. The program is for certified nuclear medicine technologists. After completing the didactic and clinical portions of the PET/CT program, students may be eligible to take the ARRT (CT), NMTCB(CT) and/or NMTCB (PET) certification exams.
Technologists who are certified in both nuclear medicine (CNMT or ARRT(N)) and in computed tomography (ARRT(CT) or NMTCB(CT)) are highly employable, especially with PET specialization (NMTCB (PET)). Presently, employers are used to hiring technologists certified in only one of these areas.
Prospective students should contact the faculty advisor for more information.
Part-time, 12 month program, designed so that students can maintain their daytime jobs. Online didactic courses are completed during the fall and spring semesters. Clinical training is scheduled on a individual basis in the fall, spring and summer.
ARRT(N) and/or CNMT certification or eligibility.
