The Radiography Accelerated Non-Traditional Program offers students who are military trained or who have previously attended a hospital-based training program the opportunity to obtain an associate of applied science in radiography through an accelerated program of study. Students who enter this learning option also have the opportunity to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) national certification examination if needed.
Eligible candidates are formally trained radiologic technologists who are currently employed in radiography with three years’ consecutive experience. All candidates must meet the program prerequisites and related courses in the curriculum prior to acceptance into the accelerated program, as well as meet the admissions requirements of Fayetteville Technical Community College.
Candidates may take prerequisite or related courses online through FTCC. Each accelerated course will be offered online with the exception of clinical courses. Candidates will have the opportunity to take a proficiency test on the first day of the online course. With a passing score, the student will be given credit for that course. If the score is not passing, the student will proceed in completing the course online for eight weeks. Clinical courses will be assigned a “portfolio” for completion of the course requirements.
Through the accelerated non-traditional option in radiography, candidates can receive an associate degree in only one year. This accelerated program is designed to help candidates who are interested in continuing their education in a four-year baccalaureate degree program by allowing them an expedient way to complete their education quickly. Completing the associate degree at FTCC also helps students save on tuition costs, as tuition expenses at FTCC are less than those at four-year universities.
