Through this user-friendly course, you’ll learn details about the EKG profession. You will gain knowledge about:

As a professional EKG technician, you’ll work alongside physicians to record and measure patients’ heart performance.

Instructor Description: Though this course is self-paced, it is supported by a client adviser. Client advisers are available to answer student questions and monitor student progress to ensure completion of the course. Motivating and encouraging students, the client adviser gives students inspiration to succeed.

Certification: EKG rhythms provide important data for the diagnosis of heart conditions. As a Certified EKG Technician (CET), you’ll have the credentials nearly all healthcare employers require to perform the critical tasks of administering EKGs, as well as Holter monitoring and stress testing. These tests can be performed during physical exams, when cardiovascular problems are suspected, or in preparation for surgery.

By administering EKGs — testing the electrical activity of the heart through small electrode patches attached to the body — you’ll be making a life-changing difference by helping people of all ages prevent and treat heart disease.

As an EKG Technician you may perform some or all of the following tasks:

Set up and administer EKGs (electrocardiograms) and stress tests
Prepare patients for Holter or ambulatory monitoring
Edit and deliver final test results to physicians for analysis
Schedule appointments
Transcribe physicians’ interpretations
The need for qualified EKG technicians continues to rise as the aging population in America grows (and with it, the prevalence of heart-related conditions). Earning your CET will help you launch a successful and meaningful career that can help make a difference in countless lives. Whether you seek full-time or part-time employment, the opportunities in this profession are flexible and in high demand. Plus, the added skills of Holter monitoring and stress tests required for the Certified EKG Technician (CET) will help you to be even more competitive as you launch your healthcare career.
Each state may have additional licensing requirements, be sure to research your states requirements for employment by visiting your states occupation board.
