Program Details

With this self-paced online program, we'll introduce you to the roles and responsibilities of an EKG technician.

You'll study the anatomy and physiology of the heart and relevant disease processes. We'll cover medical terminology, medical ethics, and legal aspects of patient contact and cardiographic testing.  

You'll learn how to implement proper patient care procedures, as well as how to accurately place leads onto the patient and run the EKG machine. We'll explain how to perform basic measurements and patient monitoring using the EKG strip, as well as stress testing, Holter monitoring, and telemetry.

We'll teach you to identify the normal tracings of the heart’s electrical activity, as well as common dysrhythmias. You'll learn how to interpret normal and abnormal EKG results to identify ischemia, injury, and infarction.

This program includes an exam registration voucher for the CET exam, offered by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA). We'll also provide an online study guide and practice exams to help you prepare.

Once you've earned a grade of 85% or better on at least 50 hours of your coursework, you have the option of a 40-hour unpaid clinical externship with a local healthcare provider. You must pass a background check and a drug screen to be eligible. Depending on the requirements of your externship site, you also may need to show proof of immunization, 2-step TB test, flu shot, and CPR certification. You're responsible for additional fees for these requirements.
