Radiologic Technology Program
An exciting career and education awaits you at Columbia Basin College’s (CBC) Radiologic
Technology program. The gateway to a rewarding career in the Imaging Sciences, the
Radiologic Technology program at CBC offers a two year program of instruction that
prepares students to sit for the Radiologic Technologist national board exam and licensure.
Radiologic technologists work directly with the patient and physician performing sophisticated diagnostic x-ray procedures including taking radiographic exposures, image and film processing, operating many types of technological equipment, and radiation safety. The radiologic technologist also provides professional handling and care of patients. The program requires a series of credit courses directly related to radiologic sciences.
CBC offers an eight-quarter Associate in Applied Science degree in Radiologic Technology. The program consists of in-class instruction, labs where students practice positioning and radiographic technique skills and up to 1,800 hours of hands-on training in local healthcare facilities. Upon successful completion of the degree, students are eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination, which if passed successfully, provides the graduate with nationally recognized credentials.
