- Radiologic Technology

One example would be an ekg tech that a cardiac department wants to train in cardiac sonography.

Employers may request a waiver on the admissions criteria if they have a specific employee they want trained. The employer would be expected to host the employee as a student and the facility must also meet our accreditation requirements. The employee also must have all pre-requisite courses completed or in progress at the time of applying.
