Successful completion of the ARDMS examinations provides certification to practice as a registered sonographer in most states.
State licensure is currently required in NH NM, ND, and OR. All other states do not require licensure. Passing of the certification exam is required in order to apply for state licensure. South College works with students in preparation to sit for the exam.
