Receiving your Vascular Technician Training in Kansas

In Kansas, there are a few certificate programs in Diagnostic Ultrasound and Vascular Technology offered throughout the state. They usually take about 18 months to complete the program and has courses in subjects such as echocardiography, medical law and ethics, vascular technology, OB/GYN, diagnostic ultrasound, medical imaging, and cardiovascular disease. Once you pass the Sonography Principles & Instrumentation (SPI) course, you are eligible to sit for the SPI national board examination for certification—prior to graduation. This exam is administered by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS).

Vascular Technician Licensing in Kansas

Kansas does not require licensing for vascular technologists. Moreover, even though some programs might offer Registered Vascular Technologist certification via the aforementioned SPI examination, it is not required to get one. However, a certification as a vascular tech enhances your chances in the eyes of employers, who tend to favor candidates with such a credential; it demonstrates adherence to a certain set of standards set by the field. Apart from the RVT, there's also the Registered Vascular Specialist (RVS) certification, which is administered by Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI). Requiring only a high school diploma, the RVS is targeted towards those who want to specialize in echocardiography; the RVT thus has greater regard in the sector.
