The Radiologic Technology/Fluoroscopy Program is designed to provide the essential information needed by student radiographers to pass the State certification examinations, including the ARRT’s Fluoroscopy and the ARRT-National Certification. Through a variety of closely integrated didactic and clinical  educational experiences, student radiographers develop both the necessary skills and abilities needed to meet the requirements of their job description, as well as provide optimal patient care. The students are prepared clinically in healthcare facilities supervised by the instructor and staff members. Passing the State and National examinations allows graduates to work as a Radiologic Technologist under a supervising licentiate.

PROGRAM EFFECTIVENESS

The Radiologic Technology/Fluoroscopy Program’s most recent success rate can viewed via the JRCERT website www.jrcert.org. This effectiveness data includes statistics on credentialing examination pass rate, job placement, and program completion rate for East Los Angeles Occupational Center and other schools.


5 YEAR CREDENTIALING EXAMINATION RATE:  95%
