Students interested in pursuing a career in the rapidly growing field of radiography received good news today: Southeast Technical announced that the college’s radiography program was awarded the maximum 3-year program accreditation by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). The 3-year accreditation is the maximum for a new program.
“I would consider JRCERT accreditation the ‘gold standard’ for radiography educational programs,” said Southeast Technical instructor Valarie Bere, who teaches in the college’s radiography program. “JRCERT accreditation isn’t something that is required, but Southeast Technical wanted to pursue it because it shows our commitment to a high quality ‘gold standard’ education in our radiography program. We are pleased to receive this accreditation.”
Southeast Technical launched its radiography program in 2009 to meet the job market’s growing need for highly-trained radiologic technologists. Students complete courses in both a classroom and clinical setting with state-of-the-art radiography equipment. The 2-year program results in an associate in applied science (A.A.S.) degree in radiography. Graduates of radiography programs find employment in radiology departments in clinic or hospital settings. Learn more at the radiography home page.
