Default UK trained CT Radiographer looking to move to and work in California

My partner is a US citizen but lives and works in the U.K. with me, only we’d like to move stateside and I’m trying to understand the accreditation/licensing process for a CT Radiographer. I’m wondering if anyone can help? It’s a bit of a shot in the dark, and I’ve asked this question in a few places and everyone seems to understand as much (or as little!) as I do.

I understand there’s an ethical AND educational requirement for the ARRT, and I think I meet both, but there’s no U.K. universities on the approved courses list so does this mean I need to do an advanced placement course in the US as a supplement?

And then there’s state registration? I wish there was a clear checklist of things I’d need to do!

Hoping somebody can help me clear things up!?

I can't help with the accreditation but I can tell you that your 'partner' is going to have to be your 'spouse' for you to be able to get a visa to live and work in the US as this job will most likely not qualify you for a visa and/or not be in demand enough to garner sponsorship.

In case you aren't aware, the CR1 visa is the one you'll be looking at - and if you hurry up and get married, you might be able to DCF (Direct Consular FIling) to London which is a lot faster but is scheduled to end later this year.

Looks like you would have to go back to school.
On the plus side, you should find the classes and exams easy.

Seems 1st April may be the deadline for DCF London.
