CCD Online offers fully online certificates and degrees, and individual online courses to help match your busy schedule. This program offers only RTE 260 as an online course with the exception of an in-seat venipuncture training, if needed, at our Lowry location.
Your first step is to see if online learning is right for you. Online and hybrid environments offer much more flexibility but require more self-direction and self-discipline. Certain work habits, learning styles and skills contribute to a successful online or hybrid learning experience.

What you will learn and experience:
The online course is designed to allow a student to progress at a flexible pace for an individualized learning experience. Once completed, you will enroll in a 15-week internship during spring or fall, or 10-weeks during the summer to obtain the required competencies for the certificate and the ARRT. Throughout the internships, you will be evaluated by CCD's MR clinical instructor to ensure you have obtained the necessary clinical skills and are able to work independently so you can be job ready.
Additional internships are available should you need additional time.
