Electrocardiograph (EKG) Technology


BEGINS January 9, 2018 (Click Here for more information)

Program Description:
Electrocardiograph (EKG) Technicians operate equipment that records and measures heart activity, which is used to assist cardiologists and physicians in diagnosing and treating cardiac (heart) and peripheral vascular (blood vessel) issues.  If you like making a difference in the lives of others, this is the career choice for you!

Over the course of 5 months, students will learn human anatomy and physiology with an emphasis on cardiac and vascular systems, medical terminology and transcription, patient care techniques, medical instrumentation, cardiovascular drugs, cardiac wellness and rehabilitation, and how to differentiate between normal and abnormal monitoring and testing results.  During the last 3 weeks of the program, students will complete an off-campus clinical rotation in the hospital setting.
