  • ultrasound tech is called something else. Its a degree like sonograph or something. Its under your college catalog in the medical section and it talks about places you can work.

  • Where do you go to school for this? I live in New Jersey and wanted to take some classes. Do you need to have a degree or is it a certification?

  • you can take classes at a community college. and you need a degree.

  • If you are taking courses by piecemeal (one at a time on what you think builds a good 'degree') and you are now questioning what you should do, then it is time to enroll in an accredited college offering radiology degrees with a specialty in ultrasonography. They will help you to obtain an actual degree so that you can take the certification exam and be able to obtain a job in that field.
    Without a degree or certification you cannot get a job, or even be taken seriously enough to obtain a job interview.
    Trust me, it is time for you to enroll in a college and stop taking classes one at a time that will not give you an actual degree in the end.
    Best wishes to you!
