Mammography Post Associate Certificate Program Application Information


The Mammography post-associate certificate is designed for those students that are registered radiologic technologists (ARRT). The program consists of didactic courses and professionally supervised clinical training performed at a local clinical site. The Mammography program provides the knowledge that will enable students to enter the workforce as entry level mammography technologists. The program prepares the post-graduate technologist to use mammography to detect for presence of tumor or lump, and other abnormalities of the breast. Mammography uses low-energy radiation to produce images of the breast that play a key role in early detection of breast cancer. The post-associate’s certificate is awarded upon successful completion of a minimum of 9 credits. Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to take the ARRT post-primary certification examination in mammography. This adds the Mammography credential (M) to their ARRT certification.
