I just finished Performance Masters ~ its a rip off ! you get your NCT only and you are trained by a Video tape most of the class. The guy that owns it is gross and his equipment is from the 40'S and unsafe. As an NCT there are no jobs out there. Don't let him full you.
He told one girl that she would make $18.00 an hour as an NCT ... ( what a joke )

no and there is no listing anywhere for NCT jobs anywhere in the DFW area. Now I have seen two posted for Concentra but you have to be a certified medical assistant as well.

I really feel like I wasted my money

TS in Arlington, Texas said: AK was a goof off. I should know I was in her class. Found a job 3 weeks ago.

TS, how did you like the class and can you tell me how the class is conducted? For example, do you learn hands on to use the equipment and how to position a patient? Your insight would be very helpful? Also, on your employment, is the pay worth the money spent for this class? Thank you in advance:)

I don't know why you said you were in my class ~ I don't know who you are and I surely was
not a goof off. I have been in the medical field for several years and took this class because i wanted a change of career . Something more hands on. ( I work in the medical insurance industry doing bill review on high dollar hospital claims , I'm no dummy or goof ! )
The instructor that we had was very nice, and I think if you are already a medical assistant or an LVN then its a great class for that. However, if you have no clinical medical back ground . then I would say no, not a good class and no there are no jobs out
there. I would not suggest it ~ I would suggest starting your two year degree at a school like Baylor . There is more opportunity and you make more money.
So you got a job three weeks ago.. Are you an MA ? and If not what are they paying you $8.00
an hour ? I am shocked that you would get on here and say something like that.
I do not recommend Performance Masters ~ go check out the Dallas office and look around before you pay the 1100.00 for the class.The class is taught via VHS tape and yes you do positioning. each eligible body part one time ~ no more then that ~

waxray in Rowlett, Texas

Well we all know NCT's Were a dime a dozen but right now we are not even that. The problem is "X-Ray training in a little as a few weeks". The State program in place now needs some type of credibility because it has little as far as the Medical Field is concerned. When I went thru the program years ago it was accepted but not respected. Now they want NCT's to acquire 6 hrs of CE's when most cant even get a job. NON CERTIFIED TECH or NCT this needs to change to a different classification.

With that being said I would like to say this. I'm an unemployed NCT and it is not because I'm not a good tech. I made $18.50 an hr + benefits before I was promoted to management and then let go because of so called cost cutting. ONCE A TECH STAY A TECH.

I happen to know Fonda. When she says she is working on change and with other programs. I know it's true. If she says she is there to help she means it. This program will go forward with Fonda and Fonda WILL be the difference.

If I can afford the CE's on 12/12/09 I will make sure it's with Fonda.

FYI. It's not easy but there are jobs out there. You just have to work hard at selling yourself.

RedRad in Dallas, Texas

I can tell you that in the DFW area, there are very, very few openings for rad techs and from searching the internet, it appears that way nationwide. I have over 10 years experience in a large hospital setting but was downsized and have been looking since October. Do yourself a favor if you are considering the medical field and look at something other than x-ray.

Dear RedRad,

You must be a bitter NCT. I also have over 10 yrs experience as a tech and was let go due to being downsized. What I would say to you is expand your knowledge to make youself more marketable. Of course this takes $$$. If you are an RT and any good at what you do(and I'm sure you are) there are jobs out there for you. I wish you the best of luck RedRad and your hospital exp. will pay off.

I have been researching the possibilities of entering the medical field (with no experience) due to recently being unemployed and have been advised by a tech at an imaging clinic to look into radiology technology or nursing but i'm looking for courses that will be shorter than a degree program. Anyone have suggestions? I'm in mckinney tx.

Can you people asking what school to go to not read the previous postings?
DO NOT GO TO RADIOGRAPHY SCHOOL, DO NOT GO TO X-RAY SCHOOL, DO NOT GO TO RADIOGRAPHY TECHNOLOGIST SCHOOL!
Go into nursing or some other profession where you will be able to find a job and make money.

Heather in New Haven, Connecticut

So. In a down economy when every industry is suffering, when it doesn't matter whether you're a new graduate or have years of experience ... everyone is out of work ..

You don't want to put in the time to get an education and become a professional, you want a short course to make some money? I hate to tell you, but this may not be the best time for it.

Hospitals have hiring freezes, some have lay-offs. The $$ (especially if you're not going to become a nationally certified RT) is not there - if that's your reason for going in to imaging, you're barking up the wrong tree.

And then there's the time I walked out of an orthopedic surgeons office because he wanted his "limited" tech to do my radiographs. I asked her where her lead apron was, and she said, "Oh, we don't need to use lead aprons here".

That's why some states (not enough!) insist on professionals.

Fonda in Natchitoches, Louisiana

65 months ago

I am in Louisiana right now. The best advise I can give you is to research where you want to go. My approach to the NCT program, I offer, is to apply more medical office training. Most individuals entering into this field of limited X-Ray have no previous medical back ground. To be an asset to the facility that my graduates enter I feel that they should be able to fill more than one pair of shoes. You can go to axrti.com and get more info. or call me anytime. Good Luck, and if I can help just let me know.

I went to Performance Masters. I have some medical background ( radiology transporter) . Stacy my instructor was great. As a lot of people have stated it is tough right now with jobs for NCT and ARRT Techs. Its hard even if you have an insurance background also. Now that the economy is down it will be tough. I try to stay positive. Fonda I would love to talk to you. Please let med know the best way

Hi darrickb,
It is a tough time right now to be looking for work in any field. This is the time of the year that decision makers are working on year end budgets, vacation, etc. Don't give up. Have you thought of going through some other kind of med. training? Call me and we can discuss the "Best Bang for Your Buck", so to speak. I will help you in any way I can. You should have my number in your 3-ring binder from Proformance Masters.

AK in Keller, Texas said: Fonda, I went to Performance Masters , we never met but when i went to the Dallas location to do the so called little intern hands on training they were talking about you.
My instructor in Arlington had nothing but excellent things to say about you.
He is a great guy and a wonderful instructer. The owner Terry on the other hand should be put out of business along with his helper Charles.
I really don't need any help. I just think i was lied to and i think i wasted 1100.00

Dear, AK in Keller, Texas
This is Charles from performance masters, If you came up and were displeased well I am sorry about that you more than likly came on a day that we were very slow I would love for you to come back and do some more Internship with me so I can make sure you get the hands on you are wanting. I do as much as I can to help my students but if there is not any patients then there is not much I can do other than teach you what you should already know. I do my best to help and for someone to post a comment saying that we should be shut down because YOU ARE DISPLEASED does not make me happy.
If you do not want to come see me at the dallas office then get with FONDA she can show you and help you with everything she was my instructor so everything I know she taught me and she has fantastic knowlege about the x-Ray field.

Hi Krissyd in Denton,

How long ago did you go to PM. I may know you. I am Fonda, the former Manager and Admissions Director for PM. I have started my own school now -- just trying to do some things a little different for those students that may need a little extra TLC. Let me know if I know you, and check out my website at axrti.com.
