X-Ray Technician Schools in Hawaii

Home to one of the world's most active volcanoes and the world's tallest sea mountain, our 50th state certainly has some spectacular scenery to offer in addition to several Hawaii x-ray technician schools. Aspiring x-ray technicians can find accredited programs at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu (on the island of Oahu), as well as access to several distance learning programs offering certificates, associate’s degrees, or bachelor's degrees in radiologic technology.

X-ray technician schools in Hawaii keep students busy, but there's plenty of time to enjoy the magnificent beaches and rugged volcanic terrain. The tropical climate means Hawaii residents spend a good deal of time outside, engaging in everything from water sports to mountain biking. It's the perfect place to take up surfing or learn the hula, after your homework is finished, of course.
