Date:June 23, 2017
ATHENS, GA (6/23/2017) – Graduates of the Athens Technical College Radiography class of 2017 have achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination. The most recent class marks the twelfth consecutive year Athens Technical College graduates have earned a 100 percent pass rate on the ARRT exam.
"Certification results represent the quality of the Radiography program at Athens Technical College," states Life Sciences and Public Safety Dean Glenn Henry. "The pass rate shows how well prepared our graduates are for the workforce."
ARRT's credential assures patients that Registered Technologists who conduct medical imaging, interventional procedures, and radiation therapy have completed the prescribed educational preparation, passed the appropriate exam, and pledged to abide by stringent ethics requirements — all of which assist them in delivering safe and effective patient care. ARRT ensures their continuing education and ongoing ethics compliance by requiring annual renewal of certification and registration.
The ARRT promotes high standards of patient care by recognizing qualified individuals in medical imaging, interventional procedures, and radiation therapy. Headquartered in St. Paul, Minn., it tests, certifies, and annually registers more than 300,000 radiologic technologists across the U.S.
Members of the Athens Technical College Radiography program faculty include Stuart Frew, program chair; Jennifer Turner, clinical coordinator and instructor; and Krissy King, instructor.
