In this 68-hour course (48 hours of classroom/lab and 20 hours of externship) the students will learn how to operate equipment that measures, monitors, and graphically traces the electrical activity of the heart. Physicians use this information to help diagnose cardiovascular problems, preop and postop cardiac clearance, annual wellness visits, and to qualify for certain life insurance policies, etc. Students will be trained to recognize abnormal rhythm strips and to provide reliable test results for the physician's interpretation. Students will learn to operate the EKG machine safely and proficiently. EKG technicians work in physician's offices, hospitals (ER), and other medical facility outpatient settings. Upon completion of the course, students will be prepared and eligible to sit for the American Allied Health National Exam to become a Certified Electrocardiograph Technician.
