Online B.S. Program for those with ARDMS Credentials

The Division offers an online distance education opportunity for ARDMS-certified sonographers who want to pursue the Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography.  No additional clinical education is required, so the sonographer may continue to work at her/his job. The individual is responsible for meeting all required clinical prerequisites for specific ARDMS examinations: see www.ARDMS.org . Contact the Division Director for more information.

To earn these credentials, candidates must pass the following American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) examinations:

  • Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (RDMS): Sonography Principles and Instrumentation AND Abdomen OR Obstetrics & Gynecology.
  • Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT): Sonography Principles and Instrumentation AND Vascular Technology.
  • Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer (RDCS): Sonography Principles and Instrumentation AND Adult Echocardiography.

Successful completion of the program does not in itself insure registration. Each student is responsible for familiarizing himself/herself with the applicable registration requirements. See: www.ARDMS.org.
