Warner Robins, Ga. – For the second consecutive year, students in the Radiologic Technology program on the Warner Robins campus of Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) earned a 100 percent pass rate for national certification.
Thirteen graduates are now registered technologists in Radiography after passing the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) Certification Examination. The ARRT is the largest credentialing organization that seeks to ensure high-quality patient care in radiologic technology.
The examination consists of 220 questions and has a three-hour time limit. Prior to taking the exam, students go through a rigorous curriculum, which includes preparation in an in-class review, on-line review, and self-study. Students are eligible to take the examination the day after graduation.
These graduates can now move on to work, backed by a certification and the support of their program faculty.
“As faculty, the goal for our students is for them to have courage to continue their endeavors, to believe in themselves, and to pursue excellence in their profession. By the students passing their credentialing examination, they have exhibited all of those qualities and achieved excellence by becoming a registered technologist in Radiography,” said Connie Young, program chair for Radiologic Technology on the Warner Robins campus. “All thirteen of the graduates passed and are prepared to take the workforce by storm. The faculty salute the graduates on this great accomplishment.”
Six of the thirteen are now employed locally, six more will now look for employment and one is continuing her education in Sonography.
The graduates include Renee’ Collins, Jaime Darsey, Taylor Haynes, Megan Keene, Hollie Koon, Tiana Ortiz, Terrence Packey, Bryant Phelps, Michelle Rinck, Kimberly Starnes, Alexandra Stephens, Amber Streetman and Holly Wiggins.
