To become a radiological technician, most states require a license. Those interested in becoming an x-ray technician can earn a license by enrolling in and completing a one to two year program from a community college or trade school. However, a bachelor's degree is recommended, as it assists a radiological technician in advancing his or her medical career. It is also possible to specialize in a subset of radiology such as mammography, medical sonography, or surgery.
