As you check out programs, make sure to find those that are accredited, as you may be required to become certified before beginning to work as an ultrasound tech in CO. Most programs have a similar starting curriculum that includes courses like Anatomy and Physiology, Communication, Healthcare Ethics, English and Technology. You will then move on to courses that are specific to the route you choose.
