Initial Mammography Training Courses
About the Course
The Achieving Quality Imaging Initial Training in Mammography seminar is a comprehensive 4 day course that covers all aspects pertaining to initial mammography training for radiologic technologists interested in crossing over into mammography.
The course is designed to provide attendees with the initial training necessary to fulfill the requirements set forth by the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA), and is an excellent resource for technologists intending to take either the ARRT or the California Mammography Registry in the near future.
Who Should Attend
Any radiologic technologist who is looking to meet the requirements set forth by the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) for initial training in mammography. Our comprehensive initial mammography training program is approved by American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and will satisfy 32 of the required 40 Category A credit hours needed to fulfill the initial training in mammography requirements set forth for a radiologic technologist. With the exception of California, all radiologist technologists will receive 12.5 credits toward the 40 required by performing 25 supervised mammograms in the presence of a qualified mammographer. Therefore, you will meet the MQSA training requirements for mammography by attending our course and performing 25 supervised mammograms.
If you are from California and need all 40 continuing education hours in order to take the California Mammography Registry, you can satisfy all 40 hours by taking both the Initial Training and 8 Hour Digital Mammography Training Courses.
This course has been approved by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) for 32 hours of Category A credit in initial mammography training requirements. Attendees must attend the entire conference to earn the 32 hours of Category A credit.
