Receiving your Radiologic Technologist Training in North Carolina

Radiologic technologists perform important diagnostic tests and administer treatments that utilize radiation-based technologies. Training to become a radiology tech generally begins by enrolling in an accredited radiation technology education program. Length of program may vary, depending on the credential you wish to seek; however, most states and employers prefer job candidates to have completed at least two years of education and to have earned an associates degree. The courses that make up a certificate or degree in radiologic technology include foundational subjects like physiology, anatomy, and radiology. As you near completion of the program, courses become more clinical in nature and involve learning in settings that more closely resemble real-life scenarios that may occur while on the job.

Radiology Technician Licensing in North Carolina

North Carolina currently does not require a professional license for radiologic technologists; however, there is discussion within the state of the possibility of implementing a licensing requirement. The legislature is considering a bill that would introduce certification by passing the exam that is administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists as part of future licensing requirements. In addition to potential change in state licensing requirements, being ARRT certified is attractive to potential employers who favor candidates that have demonstrated a certain level of knowledge and skill.

Career Outlook for Radiology Tech Jobs in North Carolina

For professionals who currently or are anticipating working in the radiology tech field, the average salaries for radiological technologist jobs are competitive, and a high rate of job growth is expected. Radiology tech jobs are expected to grow at a rate of 20 percent from 2010 to 2020, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This rate of growth is faster than the nation average and is believed to be driven in part by an aging population in the U.S. In North Carolina, the average yearly salary for radiology technicians is approximately $53,000, which is lower than the national average due to lower living costs in the state overall. The highest concentration of radiologic technologist jobs are found in medical and diagnostic labs, general and surgical hospitals, outpatient care centers, physicians' offices, and specialty hospitals.
