The Advanced Imaging Certificate in Computed Tomography (CT) can help you take the next step in your healthcare career. The one-year program is designed for technologists who are already working in the imaging field looking to advance. It combines online coursework with hands-on clinical training.
The Advanced Imaging Certificate in CT program is competitive, and potential students need to meet a certain number of requirements for consideration. The number of students admitted each term varies based on clinical availability.
The minimum requirements for admission are:
- A minimum GPA of 2.5 in any previous college-level coursework.

- Current license from either ARRT or NMTCB. Students who enroll in the Advanced Certificate program need to maintain their license in good standing throughout the course of the program. If there is any change in your licensure at any point during your studies, you need to notify AHU.

Advanced Certificate Program and Completion
Students who complete the Advanced Imaging Certificate in CT with AHU Online will be prepared to take the CT post-primary certification exam by the ARRT.
The program can be completed in one year and consists of both online coursework and a clinical internship. A clinical coordinator works with students to assign and place them at clinical sites, taking their current location into account. In some cases, students may be able to complete their clinical internship at their current place of employment. In those instances, the clinical coordinator will work with the employer to facilitate the internship.
Students who’ve successfully completed the coursework and internship receive their certificate and are encouraged to participate in the AHU Graduation ceremonies.
After program completion, you may apply to ARRT to take the CT certificate exam. The ARRT requires at least 16 hours of structured coursework (satisfied by program completion), completed within the 24 months before a student applies for the exam.
