How to Become a Radiologic Technologist in North Carolina

Regardless of which specialty you choose, you're likely to follow the same initial steps to starting a radiologic technology career in North Carolina:

  1. Complete your high school diploma or GED. As jobs in radiology almost always require some postsecondary study, this will be a necessary step in order to move up to the next level of education you need.
  2. Earn an associate or bachelor's degree. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the typical entry-level education for radiologic technologists is an associate degree, and the Associate of Applied Science in particular is common among radiologic technologists. However, some specialties in the field may require or prefer that candidates have a bachelor's degree. Whatever level of degree you pursue, make sure the program you've enrolled in has been accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
  3. Get licensed in the state of North Carolina. Once you complete your radiology program, look into licensing through the ARRT (American Registry of Radiologic Technologists). You will need to be in compliance with the North Carolina Regulations For Protection Against Radiation, which requires licensing to operate radiation machines in the state, as well as a separate application for those also working with mammography equipment.
