Working radiologic technologists may choose to apply to sit for the Computed Tomography registry examination offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)*. Our Computed Tomography (CTC) program is designed to give you the theoretical background and documented clinical experience necessary do that. Once you complete the program, you’ll be equipped to care for patients, obtain basic equipment knowledge to perform CT scans, identify common pathologies on scans, and more.
The program is based on the curriculum recommended by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and the structured education and clinical standards required by the ARRT. The didactic component of the curriculum will be delivered online using Canvas, consisting of lectures, discussions, assignments, and quizzes. The clinical component occurs in a real-world affiliated clinical setting or may be fulfilled for those already working in a CT environment.
*Belmont College does not guarantee that students will complete all clinical requirements for the ARRT exam.
What you’ll learn
- Demonstrate the behavior and skills to function as a competent, entry-level computed tomography technologist.
- Produce cross-sectional images to help radiologists diagnose diseases and disorders.
- Critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
- Provide appropriate patient care.
- Practice appropriate radiation safety principles for the protection of patients.
- Analyze cross-sectional images.
- CT principles and instrumentation.
- Radiology/CT Technologist
- CT Technologist
- CT Technologist / Computed Tomography
- CT Tech
You may be eligible to complete the ARRT CT credentialing exam (the registry). The credential will enhance your ability to obtain employment in the CT setting; if you’re already working in the setting, it will provide your employer with a board-certified technologist.
To enroll, you must:
- Be a graduate of a JRCERT- recognized radiography program
- Send transcript to the Registrar’s Office
- Be a radiologic technologist, radiation therapy technologist, or nuclear medicine technologist certified by the ARRT or NMTCB
- Show documentation as proof
- If completing clinical rotations outside of your day-to-day job, agree to a physical exam, background check, and proof of immunizations (including flu and covid)
- Be CPR certified
If you are already working in CT and want to earn the certificate to sit for boards, you can fulfill the clinical requirement with the exams performed at work.
