How to Become a Radiologic Technologist in Colorado

To become a radiological technologist in Colorado, you must enroll in and complete a radiographic training program from an accredited radiology school that is approved by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Here are the basic steps required:

  1. Earn a high school diploma. This is the first step for most jobs in health care. Students can get a jump on their college studies by taking classes in math and science, such as anatomy, biology, chemistry, physiology, and physics.
  2. Earn an associate degree. An Associate of Applied Science is the standard degree for entry-level radiologic technologists. Before enrolling in their chosen program, students should make sure it is properly accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
  3. Get licensed or certified in the state of Colorado. Colorado's state website can help you get information about state-specific requirements. To learn more about the certification process, contact the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

Only graduates from ARRT-approved programs can take the ARRT exam. The American Society of Radiologic Technologists notes that professionals working with radiation have varying requirements in Colorado, which may include the ARRT exam or a Colorado State examination. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has information on certifications. You can also contact the Colorado Radiological Society to inquire about the licensure process.
