Description:
Training Option 2 is for technologists who cannot perform their 25 patient procedures at their facility.

ARRT certification and/or a fully unrestricted state license are required for admission to the Mammography Initial Training course.

The curriculum for "Mammography Initial Training Option 2" will provide the technologist with all the required components of training as outlined by MQSA. The course includes: 24 hours of training on the core competencies as outlined by MQSA, 8 hours of Digital Mammography Modality Specific Training, and 8 hours of Tomosynthesis Modality Specific Training.

You will be awarded 40 hours of Category A credit for the five day course. The course satisfies the 16 hours of structured education requirement to apply for the ARRT Post-Primary Mammography Certification Examination. This course also meets the guidelines for states requiring special education for mammography.

Training Option 2

In April, 1999, the final rules of the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) became effective that required entry level training for mammography including the performance of 25 patient procedures under the supervision of a qualified mammographer.

Training Option 2 is for technologists who cannot perform their 25 patient procedures at their facility.

If your facility is unable to supervise the required 25 procedures to complete your training, or you are not currently employed, AHEC's Mammography Initial Training Option 2 can facilitate a clinical site in Houston, Texas. The two clinical days are scheduled after the classroom portion of the course is complete. There is no CE credit awarded for the two clinical days.

Every effort is made to schedule the days convenient to you, but there are limited openings so they are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please contact us directly to set up the clinical days that work best for you.

1-800-239-1361

Clinical placement is limited and is completed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Clinical days will begin Tuesday-Wednesday immediately following the five-course. Placement will continue in concurrent two day blocks after the Tuesday-Wednesday block is full. Clinical assignments occur during weekdays only. To secure clinical placement, AHEC must receive the registration, payment in full, and all required clinical placement paperwork. *An email will be sent once registration is received with a list of the required clinical placement paperwork.
