I can't speak to how to become a sonographer in the UK or Canada, but I can talk about the US. According to my source (https://nurse.org/healthcare/how-to-become-sonographer/), there are a few steps you can take. All will lead to the same destination
1. Sonography Certificate: It takes 12-18 months. Gives you clinical + classroom education
2. Associates Degree in Sonography: This is done at a community college and takes about 2 years to complete because there is more coursework involved. Although it also gives you clinical + classroom experience, there is a chance to specialize (ex: obstetrics)
3. Bachelors in Sonography or Imaging Science: This is a 4 year degree at a university. Most of these offer a specialization program
4. Master in Sonography - 6+ years but only helpful for people who want to go into management or academia
As long as you follow one of these paths, you can get to your end goal. I hope this was helpful!
