New Computed Tomography certificate program starts this summer at RCC

ASHEBORO (May 12, 2021)

Are you a Radiologic Technologist who would like to add another skill to your resumé? Randolph Community College is starting a Computed Tomography (CT) certificate program this summer, starting May 24. CT uses x-rays, which are then processed by a computer to create cross sectional images of a patient’s body. The process is used in both emergency and outpatient procedures.

RCC will have two, eight-week classes online with a combination of prerecorded lessons and live, virtual face-to-face sessions. Clinicals will occur after completion of the two classes. The clinical is approximately 30 hours per week for eight weeks to help meet the AART requirement of 125 competencies. Students who are able to earn their competencies with their employer may be eligible for a different schedule.

Interested students must:
• Have graduated or be preparing to graduate from a JRCERT-accredited program;
• Hold American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), and/or Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB), and/or the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS);
• Submit two letters of recommendation to Director of Student Success Counseling Rebekah Kingston at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. — one from a direct supervisor and the other from any professional reference;
• Attend an information session (contact Radiography Department Head Anna Phillips at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for dates and times);
• Plan to submit a medical form, immunizations, and complete a background check and drug screen at their own expense;
• Plan to attend an orientation session for the program.

Students are admitted based on critical availability, and admission is first come, first served.

Students are encouraged to complete the financial aid application even if they do not think they will qualify as the College will use this application when considering scholarship applicants.
