Graduates are eligible for admission to the national certification examination, administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Upon passing the ARRT exam, the initials RT(R), signifying registered technologist (radiography) may be used by the technologist.

Throughout the radiography program, students spend up to 40 hours each week in the didactic/clinical setting. The program consists of lectures, demonstrations, lab experiences, and supervised clinical experience. When not in the classroom, the students spend time in the clinical setting with the staff radiographers and radiologists performing various radiologic procedures. As students' competencies are completed increased responsibilities are assigned.

The student's daily schedule varies depending upon the time frame of the program. The schedule includes some evening clinical experience. Clinical sites include: Covenant Medical Center (Waterloo - 272-7070/School - 272-7419), Sartori Memorial Hospital (Cedar Falls - 268-3060), Mercy Hospital (Oelwein - 283-6055) and Covenant Clinic Orthopedic Office.
