Radiologic Technology is a two-year Associate in Science Degree program providing professional training for radiologic technologists. Radiologic technologists work in a professional environment at a hospital, clinic, or private office.

Skills involved include patient care, positioning, operating X-ray equipment, image quality assessment, technical factors, and interacting with the general public, ancillary workers, and physicians.

A new class begins each year at the start of fall semester. Students who successfully complete the program are eligible for State Certification in Diagnostic Radiography and can take the State Permit exam in Fluoroscopy. Program graduation also provides eligibility to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technology (ARRT) national board examination.

The Radiologic Technology Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology and the State of California Department of Public Health, Radiologic Health Branch. This program has earned the highest level of accreditation awarded by the JRCERT for three accreditation cycles in a row, which is the equivalent of 27 straight years. Earning a high award of accreditation means the program meets or exceeds defined Standards for: Integrity, Resources, Curriculum, and Academic Practices, Health and Safety, Assessment, and Institutional/Programmatic Data. Program Effectiveness Data, including ARRT examination pass rates, graduate employment rates, and student retention rates are monitored on an ongoing basis.

The value of accreditation not only displays the quality of the program, but is necessary to maintain so students will qualify to take licensing and certification examinations. If a program were to lose its accreditation, the students would not be able to take the national or state boards. Employers may not hire a radiologic technologist without a license.
