Computed Tomography

Regional health organizations have expressed a need for CT technologists in their facilities. With a CT certificate from Southwest Virginia Community College, you can get full preparation to join their team.

You’ll get a great education plus training needed for the National Registry examination 1 leading to advanced certification as a Registered Radiographer in CT by the ARRT.


The Career Studies Certificate in Computed Tomography Imaging is designed to prepare selected students to qualify as contributing members of the allied health interdisciplinary team. This program is for registered ARRT or CNMT technologists who wish to learn a new modality, are technologists already doing CT but need classes to meet ARRT’s Structured Education requirements, or are ARRT technologists needing CEUs.


* Students who can provide documentation of continuous employment in CT for a minimum of 1 year before the application deadline have the option of NOT completing the RAD 196 clinical class requirements.

Students must be either ARRT or CNMT registered technologists to be eligible for entry into the CT program.

In addition to the college application, a separate Computed Tomography program application and official transcripts of all previous colleges attended.
