EKG Technician Highlights:

Student Application Procedure: ***see admission requirements***


Course Objectives:

An EKG or Electrocardiograph is a medical test that records the heart’s electrical impulses. Electrocardiography (ECG/EKG) provides valuable information to the medical team about the electrical activity in the heart. The EKG is a highly specialized and technical tool for assessing cardiac function and diagnosing cardiac disease. To perform this task, a technician fastens electrodes to a patient to be read by the EKG machine and the information or reading that is obtained and printed out is given to the medical team to interpret. ECG/EKG Certified Technicians, also known as Electrocardiograph technicians or Cardiovascular technicians, perform EKGs readings, Holter Monitoring, Lead Placement and Stress Tests (usually on a treadmill) in a clinic setting. EKG Technicians can work in various settings to include hospital but are often found working in an office or clinic assisting with what is known as outpatient procedures.

Class Layout:

Basic Arrhythmia and EKG Technician will focus on Anatomy and Physiology, Cardiac Electrical System, Cardiac Monitoring and 12-Lead Basics and EKG changes. Lab simulation will be conducted to give students hands-on experience on an in-house simulator and EKG machine.

Our EKG Technician program consists of 48 hours including classroom theory and lab simulation. These programs include comprehensive, fast-paced training in a classroom learning theory, lab simulation activities performed in our clinical area and hands-on clinical training on up-to-date equipment to enhance learning of skills.
