JJC will accept applications for radiologic technology program from Nov. 1-30

The Junior Joliet College has announced the dates of the application submission for the radiologic technology program. The applications will be accepted by the college for the summer 2020 semester from Nov. 1 to Nov. 30. The x-rays are used by the radiologists for examining the health of the patient. The technology is used to assess those parts of the body that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

The students get a chance to learn the radiographic procedures, radiographic positioning, and patient care during the two-year associate degree path. The college allows limited enrollments and it has set a special admission criterion. Bob Verkler is the professor of the radiologic technology at the Junior Joliet College. He is also the coordinator of the radiologic technology program at the college.

Verkler said, “Radiographers have been in high demand and will be for the foreseeable future.” The medical locations always need radiographers and radiologic technologists. They can get a job at any medical center, hospital, and outpatient clinic setting. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) revealed in a report that the demand for radiologic technologists was projected to rise 9 percent from 2018 to 2018.

The BLS report suggested that the demand for radiologic technologists would grow at the fastest pace as compared to all other occupations. The main reason for the growth in demand is the need for images for the diagnosis of diseases. The median income of a radiographer was $59, 520/year in 2018.

The students will learn the theoretical and practical knowledge about the radiography equipment during their two years at the JJC. The students will earn the certificate after passing the exam taken by the American Register of Radiologic Technologists (AGRT). The students will be eligible to take their state license with the Illinois Emergency Management Agency. You are advised to visit the official site of the JJC for getting more information about the program.
