Didactic, laboratory and clinical training includes operation of general and fluoroscopic radiographic equipment, exposing and processing images, radiation safety, positioning patients, ethics and clinical patient care. Graduates will have obtained California fluoroscopic and venipuncture training within the program. Starting in 2015, all ARRT candidates must possess an associate degree or higher (in any field or area), in addition to the successful completion of the 24-month program, in order to be eligible to sit for the ARRT exam.
