POTTSTOWN PA – For a fourth consecutive year, every one of Montgomery County Community College’s May 2012 radiography graduates have passed the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) National Certifying Examination, the college has announced.
In all, 11 MCCC students graduated from program, including western Montgomery County residents Jennifer Callahan of Royersford, Marjorie Kelley of Schwenksville, Allison Lavella of Perkiomenville, Katie Mealing of Pennsburg, Tessa Piepmeyer of Pottstown, and Erica Wilson of Gilbertsville.
Since its inception at MCCC, 93 students have graduated from the radiography program and proceeded to become ARRT registered radiographers. Graduates of the program have a six-year pass rate of more than 97 percent, far above the 75 percent benchmark of the Joint Review Committee on Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), its accrediting agency for the program.
Upon passing the examination, the students become Registered Technologists, authorized to work anywhere in the United States and Puerto Rico.
