Length of Training/Requirements
Training programs vary from one year to four years, depending on the program and the certification or degree awarded. Most employers prefer to hire graduates of accredited programs who are eligible for (or who already have) the voluntary license.

Licensure/Certification
To work in the state of Texas, radiologic technologists must be licensed with the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). This requires graduation from an accredited educational program and the successful passing of the examination offered by the DSHS. Additional specializations might also require additional licensure/certifications. Texas RTs must complete 24 hours of continuing education (CE) during each biennial renewal period.
