      Wisconsin Ultrasound Career Outlook

      According to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue in their Fall 2011 economic release, “The Education and Health Services sector was the only private sector not to fall during the recession, helped by growth in health care”. As the population ages, both nationally and regionally, the demand for health care workers will increase. Hospitals remain the largest employer of diagnostic medical sonographers, and typically have salaries higher than the state average. Wisconsin overall had a median annual salary ($79,280 in 2013) for ultrasound techs that far exceeds the national median of $66,410.

      Certification Requirements in Wisconsin

      The state of Wisconsin does not require licensure or certification to be an ultrasound technician. However, many states are considering requiring professional licensure or certification, and many employers require it as well. The most common certification is by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS). The only way to earn their certification is by taking and passing their exam. There are many locations throughout Wisconsin to take the exam, and you can find them on the ARDMS website at ardms.org, or by calling the testing company Pearson Vue at 1-877-258-9220.

      The easiest way to qualify to sit for the exam is to graduate from a program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). Otherwise, you’ll need 12 months of full time clinical experience. Request information from several ultrasound technician schools in Wisconsin, and do the research to make sure that they meet the certification requirements you’re looking for.
