Program Mission Statement
As an integral part of our college, the program in Radiologic Technology accepts the mission, vision and values of Lorain County Community College (see LCCC Catalog), and functions within the policies of the college. Our mission is to provide students with a workable understanding of radiographic procedures, anatomy and physiology, radiation physics, equipment operation, radiation protection, image evaluation, radiologic pathology, and patient care as applied to Radiologic Technology.
Education and training in these areas will result in a professional practitioner, able to serve the public and assist the physician in his/her diagnosis. We further seek to introduce the broad range of advanced specialty areas in Radiologic Technology to encourage lifelong learning beyond the immediate scope of the program.
Radiologic Technologist Certification
Upon successful completion of the radiography program at LCCC, graduates are eligible for the credentialing examination offered through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Successful completion of the ARRT exam is required to be certified as a radiologic technologist practicing in radiography. Licensure to practice in the state of Ohio is approved by the Ohio Department of Health X-ray Control Program.
