Respiratory Care Program

The Respiratory Therapy Program at Delaware County Community College is a consortium program with Crozer-Chester Medical Center. This joint affiliation provides the student with the varied clinical experience from one of Delaware County’s finest healthcare institutions, with the academic excellence of Delaware County Community College, all with affordable tuition rates. The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care.

Upon completion of the program, the student will be awarded an Associate in Applied Science in Respiratory Therapy from Delaware County Community College, as well as a Certificate of Completion from Crozer-Chester Medical Center. The Respiratory Therapy program is an entry-level program, providing the graduate with the academic background necessary to take the Entry-Level exam to be a Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT), and then the Registry Exam to be a Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT). Most states, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, require the minimum of the certification examination for state licensure.
