Limited Permit Bone Density Technician School

As of June 2018, the Foundation for Osteoporosis Research and Education (FORE) is no longer providing the Limited Permit X-ray Technician School in Bone Densitometry.

Please register at the UCSD School of Bone Densitometry (click here).

The Exercise and Physical Activity Resource Center (EPARC) located at the University of California San Diego will provide high-quality training for individuals who would like to become certified in California as Limited X-Ray Technicians using Dual X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA).  

These classes will be a blend of traditional didactic “in-person” instruction, interactive online learning, and direct experiential training. Not only will students receive the fundamental knowledge and skills required to be a top-notch technician, the UCSD School of Bone Densitometry offers training in advanced research and clinical applications ranging from lateral vertebral assessments, to highly accurate estimates of visceral fat.  

Dr. Jeanne Nichols, Program Director, and David Wing M.S., the EPARC Laboratory Director, have more than 30 combined years of DXA experience and will lead the instruction team.  Additionally, subject experts in radiology, pharmacology, nutrition, and other related areas will provide didactic instruction. 

If you have questions, or would like further information about the program before registering, you can call Ms. Lauren Claravall at 858-822-7624 or reach our team at ucsdboneschool@gmail.com
