The Radiologic Technology (RADT) program is a 24-month long program that prepares and qualifies graduates to become nationally registered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT; www.arrt.org).  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.  Currently, the admissions selection process is lottery based.  For more information, be sure to carefully read the Information/Application packet and Frequently Asked Questions, provided in the side links.
