RESPIRATORY CARE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

The study program for respiratory care is usually taught at a community college as a two-year associate degree. Upon graduation, certification (CRT) is gained by passing a national voluntary examination. Advanced credentials can be gained by passing two or more additional examinations that lead to the designation as a registered respiratory therapist (RRT).

Some respiratory care programs are offered in collaboration with other schools. If the community colleges near you are not included in this listing, contact Admissions to determine whether they have affiliate status with another college.
