Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) (CPMRIP)

Post-Associate Certificate


The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Program is a post-associate advanced certificate program that is designed for registered radiologic technologists (ARRT), radiation therapists (ARRT), Sonographers (ARRT or ARDMS), and nuclear medicine technologists (ARRT or NMTCB). This program offers the didactic and clinical experience that will provide students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that are required to become an entry-level magnetic resonance imaging technologist. The curriculum is based on the recommended American Society of Radiologic Technology (ASRT) magnetic resonance imaging guidelines. Upon successful completion of the MRI program, students are eligible to take the ARRT post-primary certification examination in magnetic resonance imaging.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”

—Wendy L., 48
