Receiving your Sonogram Technician Training in Florida

For recent high school graduates and nontraditional students alike, enrolling in a sonogram technician training program can open the door to a lucrative career in a growing field. If you wish to apply to a sonogram technician school, you must first have obtained a high school diploma or GED. A secondary school curriculum that focuses on math, science, communications, and computers is recommended. Next, aspiring sonogram technicians must apply to a post secondary education program that specializes in sonogram technology training and is approved by the state in which you wish to work. Sonogram tech courses commonly teach math, science, and workplace standards as well as specific instruction on operating computer-based sonogram equipment.

Sonography technician Licensing in Florida

Currently, the State of Florida does not require licensing for people who wish to work as a sonography tech; however, voluntary certification is available through national and international organizations. A major benefit of obtaining voluntary certification is increased competitiveness when searching for a job. Employers tend to favor candidates who have proven their skill level by successfully completing a certification exam. The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists is a national professional organization that enables candidates to become certified by completing an exam that is administered by the organization. ARRT certification is widely accepted by employers and state licensing boards across the United States. The American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography is an international professional organization that is specifically open to sonography professionals and offers certification through successful completion of the organization's exam. In addition to increasing job market competitiveness, becoming voluntarily certified may help technicians anticipate changing laws that may eventually require licensing and/or certification as state legislatures aim to take measures to encourage more accurate, efficient use of sonography for medical diagnostics.

Career Outlook for Sonogram Technicians in Florida

Sonogram techs have a favorable career outlook due to extremely positive job growth rate predictions and high salary expectations. As sonogram technology is increasingly embraced over invasive diagnostic procedures, the demand of sonogram techs is expected to increase. It is projected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that the number of sonogram technician jobs will increase by 39 percent from 2012 to 2022.

With high salaries and career credentials that can be earned within two years or less, a career as a sonogram tech may be equally appealing to those who wish to pursue a career in the medical field, but do not wish to attend four years of post secondary schooling as well as working adults who are seeking a new, rewarding career in a clinical setting, but are unable to return to school full time for four years.
