Mammography Training

The Mammography program is eligible for Learn & Work funding to cover the cost of tuition. To enroll in the mammography training courses, individuals must be registered radiologic technologists through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and have an active state license.

Salt Lake Community College offers didactic and clinical training to help radiologic technologists gain the competencies and knowledge to become a mammographer.

Mammographers are a vital part of the health and screening of many people in our community. To enroll in the mammography training courses, individuals must be registered radiologic technologists through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and have an active state license.

The mammography training at SLCC consists of two courses (HS 2200 and HS 2215) which are taken concurrently each spring semester. The courses are completed in one semester, after which the student must pass the ARRT mammography board exam to become a certified mammographer.

HS 2200 and HS 2215 are each four-credit courses and are offered at the SLCC Jordan Campus in the Health Sciences Center. HS 2200 is a hybrid course. SLCC has an energized mammography laboratory for training and practice in the lab setting.

HS 2215 is the clinical component of the training. The student participates in twenty clinical hours per week over 15 weeks completing 150 clinical hours. Students must pass-off 25 supervised mammograms and 75 unsupervised mammograms. Immunization and certification compliances are required to participate in the clinical course.

A current background check and drug screen are required. If a student has had a background check within two years, and a drug screen within one year, these can be submitted.

Interested in Registering for Mammography Courses? Send an email of intent with an attached copy of your Radiologic Technology license to Stace Briggs at stace.briggs@slcc.edu. Once current licensure is confirmed with the Division of Occupational & Professional Licensing, an override will be applied with permission to register for the courses.

It is highly advised, (not required), to register two months prior to the start of the spring semester. This provides the student time to receive advisement for clinical compliances, background checks, and a drug screen. These requirements plus an online tracking system for compliances and a course fee are additional costs to the student.
