MRI Certificate Program

​​​​​​​Th​​e Radiologic Sciences program offers advanced certificate programs for ARRT technologists to broaden their clinical experience and certifications. Completion of the required classroom, lab and clinical components with a grade of C or above will result in a certificate in the related track. Students may choose not to take clinical courses if they have access to the experience on their own to achieve the ARRT procedural requirements.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Certificate

The Magnetic Resonance Imaging Advanced Technical certificate trains ARRT technologists to produce cross-sectional and 3D images of a patient. The images are then used by a physician to make a diagnosis.

The certificate is a three-semester program that begins each Spring. The program includes class and lab time in our dedicated, onsite MRI trailer (1.5-ton MRI scanning suite), which is an actual MRI scanning environment for student lab learning time. Dallas College offers this revolutionary, onsite MRI scanning lab experience as compared to online programs with no hands-on experience or online simulation programs.

Classes and lab time are held at Brookhaven Campus on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-8:50 p.m. during Spring, Summer and Fall semesters. Clinical experience begins in late February each year and requires 24 clock-hours per week.
