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 who anticipate the need for testing accommodations should contact the appropriate board certification organization to find out the documents required to request such an accommodation. All students in the program are required to sit for the three national board certification examinations before they complete the program. The program is accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP.org). This accreditation allows students to sit for national registry examinations up to two months prior to graduation. Obtaining national registry credentials is essential to employment.
