Career Studies Certificate
Code: 221-109-05

Purpose: The PVCC Career Studies Certificate in Vascular Sonography will prepare competent entry-level vascular technologists in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and effective (behavior) learning domains.

Occupational Outlook: According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer uses equipment that emits sound waves to penetrate through body tissue (www.bls.gov). The sound waves reverberate back to create a computerized image of the body tissue. Vascular Sonographers are thus the specially trained technologist who work with the vascular system.

Admission to the Program: ARDMS and relevant work experience. After applying to PVCC, students must also apply to the Vascular Sonography Program.
