According to https://www.nursingprocess.org/ultrasound-technician-programs/new-york/ "In the state of New York, you don’t need licensure on a statewide level to become a sonogram technician, but employers may prefer that you become certified through the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography. Once you complete all of your educational studies to become a sonogram technician, including all coursework, lab work and clinical training, you can then apply to sit for the certification exam offered through the ARDMS. Completing the exam takes about two hours. If you don’t pass the first time, take comfort in knowing you have to wait only 60 days before taking it again."

https://www.ultrasoundtechnicianschools.com/specialty/sonography/new-york/ list types of Diagnostic Medical Sonography Educational Programs in New York. There are three options available in NY to work in this field. These include an associate as well as a bachelor’s degree program and a certificate program, which range in length from one to four years and cost anywhere from $2330 to $169,520.

Type of Degree Length Tuition Cost
Associate 2 years $9,410 - $112,370
Bachelor’s 4 years $55,840 - $169,520
Certificate (for individuals who hold an associate or bachelors degree in an allied health field) 1–2 years $2,330 - $70,630
