Trenholm Tech program gets highest accreditation

MONTGOMERY, AL - The Medical Radiologic Technology Program at Trenholm State Technical College was recently awarded the maximum eight-year accreditation by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

JRCERT is the nation's premier radiography governing body and the only agency recognized by the United States Department of Education for the accreditation of traditional and distance delivery of educational programs in radiography, radiation therapy, magnetic resonance, and medical dosimetry.

"We are very excited and proud that we have received JRCERT accreditation. This is our gold seal of approval," said Sam Munnerlyn, president of Trenholm State.  "Our accreditation promotes continual excellence in education and enhances quality and safety of patient care through the accreditation of our allied health education programs."  

Programs accredited by the JRCERT must demonstrate that they are in substantial compliance with the relevant JRCERT accreditation standards: Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Radiologic Sciences (radiography and radiation therapy), Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Magnetic Resonance, or Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Medical Dosimetry. 

"Accreditation of our educational program assures patients that our students have appropriate supervision during the educational process and assures our community that graduates have met the minimum level of competency as defined by JRCERT. Accreditation allows our students to sit for the national certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)," said Paul Littlefield, program coordinator of the Medical Radiologic Technology Program at Trenholm State.
