Those in the field have said that there are NOT supposed to be too many jobs for sonographers (or radiologic technologists) despite what those private overpriced for-profit tech schools might say. If you’re still interested in training, please consider the more AFFORDABLE community college and please forgo those online, for-profit schools (though may have ‘brick and mortar’ buildings and may be ‘regionally accredited’) such as sanford brown, anthem, pima institute, keiser and others as they are merely out to ‘make a profit’ (** and course credits may NOT transfer to other schools **).
These consumer sites have negative posts by former students about those online, for-profit schools, and please heed the students’ warnings:
