Description:
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 1” will provide the technologist with all of the required components of training as outlined by MQSA. The course includes: 24 hours of training on 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 1

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 1 is for technologists who can perform their 25 patient procedures at their facility.

Facilities may supervise the MQSA required 25 patient procedures for their employees following the didactic program. The supervising clinical faculty must be a RT(R) (M) meeting MQSA requirements. Supervising clinical faculty will be required to supervise, document, and return original clinical evaluation forms for students to complete the course and receive their Initial Training in Mammography certificate.

The credentialing paperwork required for the Supervising Clinical Faculty will be emailed after payment has been processed. All of the credentialing paperwork for Option 1 must be provided at least two weeks prior to the start date of the course.

If your facility is unable to supervise the required 25 procedures to complete your training, AHEC can facilitate a clinical site in Houston, Texas for an additional two days after the classroom portion of the course is complete. This option requires an additional course fee and paperwork. Please view the "Mammography Initial Training Option 2" course description for detail. https://store.aheconline.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=59_78&product_id=4285 *Clinical placement is limited and is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Individuals must register, pay in full, and turn in all required paperwork to secure a clinical placement.
