Upon graduation, students are eligible to apply for a registry from the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) or the Cardiovascular Credentialing, International (CCI).
Once a student completes the program’s required vascular classes, vascular hours and vascular proficiencies then they can make application for the vascular specialty registry (RVS) that is offered by Cardiovascular Credentialing, International (CCI). It is possible to meet these requirements PRIOR to graduating from the program. CCI will not release your credentials until you graduate.
Student’s can also take the physics registry from the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography while in the program. This can be done after you complete the sonography physics class with a grade of a C or better.
Both of these options are great benefits for the students. Upon passing these two registries student’s can list these on their resumes as they search for a job possibly giving them an advantage.
