Come learn more about Central Piedmont's respiratory therapy program at our information session. Respiratory therapists treat people with disorders affecting the cardiopulmonary system, such as asthma, emphysema, pneumonia, cardiovascular disorders, and trauma. Using Central Piedmont's advanced and task trainer simulators, you will learn proper techniques and improve your decision-making skills in an interactive environment. Through repeated skills and scenario training, you will be better prepared to work safely with patients. When you finish our program, you will be eligible to take the National Board for Respiratory Care certification examination.

Our respiratory therapy program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC). We pride ourselves in a competitive, award-winning program; in 2018, we received the Distinguished RRT Credentialing Success Award.

At the information session, we will tell you more about what it's like to be a respiratory therapist, how to become a respiratory therapist, our program requirements, and how to apply to our program.
