Triton College Launching Vascular Technology in Sonography Certificate Program

January 9, 2019 — Starting in spring 2019, Triton College’s Vascular Technology in Sonography Certificate Program will help working sonographers and recent Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program graduates gain new skills and increase job opportunities.

In just two semesters, students will learn imaging technology and other techniques to assist doctors in diagnosing arterial and venous conditions affecting limbs. Program completers will be prepared to sit for the Registered Vascular Technologists exam through the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS).

Classes are held two nights per week as well as on Saturdays from January through August. The program utilizes the cutting-edge technology available in the recently renovated Health and Sciences building on Triton College’s River Grove, Ill., campus.  

“What makes this program special and separates it from the rest is that it is geared toward working sonographers,” said Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program Coordinator Krysti Reece. “The students can come during the week for the lectures, and then on Saturdays have the lab component where they can perform exams and gain the skillset they need.”

Students requiring clinical components will be assigned to a partnering area hospital where they will perform exams on patients. Many students’ clinical component will be satisfied through work performed at their place of employment.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, vascular technologists earned a median salary of more than $65,000 in 2017. Job openings for vascular technologists are expected to grow by 17 percent by 2026.
