What will I learn?

The Advanced Certificate in Magnetic Resonance Imaging will teach you to work closely with patients, using your knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and MRI principles to produce distinct images clearly. Additionally, you will be well prepared to advance your career by extending your expertise.

This 12-month, part-time program is offered entirely online for working technologists who wish to become more marketable by having instruction in an additional modality, or for technologists already working in MRI who are seeking post-primary certification. Upon completion of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) clinical experience requirements, graduates of this certificate program will be prepared to sit for the MRI Post-primary Certification Exam.
