The Educators Board actively evaluates the training needs for each county to bring new opportunities to your area. The newest opportunities are two new cardiovascular programs, a Diploma program at Cape Fear Community College and an advanced degree, diploma and/or certificate program at South Piedmont Community colleges. 

In additional to the new advanced cardiovascular program, South Piedmont Community College plans on applying to offer the first credit certificate in Musculoskeletal (MSK) Sonography in the state. Typically MSK is taught at proprietary schools and is expensive. SPCC is working in a comprehensive program that will be affordable. This program will serve working sonographers that wish to enhance their skills and obtain the necessary information and hands-on experience to prepare for the national ARDMS (American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography) MSK exam. North Carolina is a leader in sonography education through its accredited programs and through the continuing education offered through NCUS.

Thank you for the opportunity to update you on the opportunities to further your education.
