Mammography

The Casper College Mammography Certificate Program is a one semester advanced certification program available to graduates of an accredited radiography program.

What are the features of Casper’s program?

Mammographers are highly trained professionals who work with state of the art imaging equipment to produce high quality screening and diagnostic images of the breast.

The program curriculum incorporates the standards established by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists and the guidelines set forth by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT). Upon successful completion of the program, students will be eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) national post primary certification exam in Mammography.

All courses will be offered in a hybrid format with three required on campus classes. The remainder of the program is offered online via Moodle. Courses will cover all content areas required by the ARRT.

Certificate requirements: Must be a registered Radiologic Technologist (radiographer or radiation therapist): Registered Nuclear Medicine Technologist (ARRT or NMTCB); registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (ARRT or ARDMS); or be registry eligible.

Students enrolled in any of the health science programs will participate in clinical experiences in a variety of agencies. Prior to participating in the clinical experiences, students will be subject to that agency’s requirements for a background check, drug testing and/or drug abuse prevention policies. Students are then subject to the random drug testing policy of that agency.

Following graduation, several of the state and/or national licensing or certification (registry) boards, including the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), may refuse to allow a graduate to sit for the required exam or issue a license or certification to a person who has a prior felony conviction or proven history of drug or alcohol abuse. Applicants to whom this applies should consult the program director for further information.
