National Board Certification

Graduates of the program meet the educational requirements outlined under Prerequisite 2 of the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers ARMDS (www.ardms.org).  The ARDMS conducts a “pre-application review,” for individuals who wish to determine the impact of a previous criminal matter on their eligibility to apply for ARDMS certification. This review process is recommended for individuals who have not yet applied or are contemplating enrollment in a sonography program that might have a previous criminal matter. 

Applicants that anticipate the need for testing accommodations should contact the appropriate board certification organization to find out what documents will be required in order to request such an accommodation. All students in the program are required to set for the national board certification examinations.
