MRI Schools/Education in Florida

Radiologic Technologists is the broad heading for those who take x-rays or CT scans. Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI, technologists fall into this category. Using a strong magnetic field instead of radiation, the MRI technologist knocks body atoms out of alignment, which causes certain signals to be given off. These signals are measured by a computer and are able to create detailed images of bodily systems. The metropolitan area of Punta Gorda, Florida has the highest concentration of Radiologic Technologists of any metropolitan area in the United States. The area employs 210 technologists who make an average yearly salary of $56,000. These workers earn about $3000 more than their counterparts across the country.

While Florida does not require its MRI technicians to be certified and/or licensed with the state, many employers will not accept candidates who are not nationally certified radiologic technologists. Take a radiologic technologist training program. Programs typically take from six months to two years to complete. After graduating with your basic radiology technician certificate, you need to attend school specifically for training as a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Technologist. Florida MRI technician schools will provide at least 1000 hours of MRI training, and usually take about a year to complete.

To maintain your Florida radiologic technologist certification, you must complete 12 hours of continuing education every two years. A list of approved continuing education providers is at srdappsdoh.doh.state.fl.us/RadTech/CeProviders.aspx. 
ARMRIT MRI certification also requires 12 hours of continuing education every two years. Credits must be in MRI Technology or MRI patient care.

Through campus based and online programs, aspiring MRI Technicians in Jacksonville, Miami, Tampa, St. Petersburg and Orlando, Florida may be able to prepare themselves for the possibility of employment in some of the largest hospitals and healthcare facilities in the state including Baptist Medical Center, Florida Hospital Orlando, Mount Sinai Medical Center, Jackson Memorial Hospital, and Memorial Regional Hospital.
