How to Become a Radiologic Technologist in Ohio

As with most health care jobs, radiologic technology is a field that requires some kind of postsecondary education or training, as well as a state license. The basic steps to becoming a radiology tech in Ohio include:

  1. Complete your high school diploma. This is typically the first step for most jobs in the health care field, and a high school diploma or the equivalent is usually required for any postsecondary education. While in school, the Bureau of Labor Statistics recommends that students take classes in math and in different sciences, such as anatomy, biology, chemistry\ and physics.
  2. Earn an associate degree, bachelor's degree or postsecondary certificate. The Associate of Applied Science degree is common among radiologic technologists, and it’s important to make sure your program has been accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). The specific credential you need will depend on which radiology profession you choose to pursue, as they may require different levels of education.
  3. Get licensed in Ohio. Ohio has a Radiology Technology Section within the Division of Prevention, Bureau of Radiation Protection, which is responsible for licensing radiology workers. The state of Ohio does require that professionals hold a valid Ohio radiologic license for radiographers, nuclear medicine techs, radiation therapists and X0ray technicians. Licenses may include an initial examination as well as continuing education requirements.
