There are a variety of training programs, from one to four years in length. Good training programs include opportunities to practice the classroom skills in a live patient setting. Check that the program you choose has accreditation for sonography; that assures its quality.

You have to attend an accredited medical training program to become certified in sonography. You have to have a high school diploma or equivalent diploma before being accepted; having a bachelor's degree in biological sciences is even better. You then have to pass an internship/clinical affiliation and become licensed to practice.
