Cardiac Sonography Training in Rhode Island - RI

In Rhode Island, you must have a science or allied health field associate degree in order to apply for a position as a cardiac sonographer. Some cardiac sonographer positions in Rhode Island also require specialized training beyond the associate degree, in diagnostic medical sonography or cardiac technology. Cardiac sonographer training can be achieved at a college or university medical center. The program you decide on must be endorsed by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Professionals (CAAHEP) in order to qualify.

Much training of cardiac sonographers beyond formal schooling is done on the job. While in training, you might receive practical experience through an internship, but once you obtain an echocardiographer position, you will also undergo 8 to 16 weeks of on-the-job training. The state of Rhode Island does not mandate certification for its echocardiographers, but many employers would rather hire certified applicants. Certification is available from two organizations: Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI) and the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS). The CCI offers four certifications: Certified Cardiographic Technician (CCT), Registered Cardiac Sonographer (RCS), Registered Vascular Specialist (RVS), and Registered Cardiovascular Invasive Specialist (RCIS). The ARDMS offers Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer (RDCS) and Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT) credentials.
