Radiography Program Mission
The mission of the Radiography Program is to provide an allied health curriculum that is supportive in achieving individual student goals as well as professional patient-centered care within the community. To improve the educational base of radiologic science, the curriculum supports the development of professional ethics, communication, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills. The curriculum awards an associate degree.
The program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) and is operated in compliance with their standards for accredited radiography programs.
The Radiography program at FTCC was accredited in 2017 for eight years. The next site visit is in November, 2025.

The JRCERT has defined not actively seeking employment as:
- Graduate fails to communicate with program officials regarding employment status after multiple attempts,
- Graduate is unwilling to seek employment that requires relocation,
- Graduate is unwilling to accept employment due to salary or hours,

What to Expect:
Course work includes clinical rotations to area health care facilities, radiographic exposure, image processing, radiographic procedures, physics, pathology, patient care and management, radiation protection, quality assurance, anatomy and physiology, and radiobiology.
Radiography students will attend clinical rotations that are geographically disbursed and can be both day or evening hours each semester.
Graduates may be eligible to apply to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists’ national examination for certification and registration as medical radiographers. Graduates may be employed in hospitals, clinics, physicians offices, medical laboratories, governmental agencies, and industry.
The Radiography Program is designed to meet the educational requirements for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists national certification in Radiography. Please see the disclosure chart for information regarding the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists national certification in Radiography in other states.
