Electrocardiography (EKG/ECG) is the study of the measurement of electrical activity in the heart and the recording of such activity as a visual trace on paper or a cardiac monitor, using electrodes placed on the skin of the limbs and chest.
The EKG Technician course presents the student with knowledge of the heart’s anatomy, physiology, function, how it produces electricity, and how one records this electricity with an EKG machine and/or a telemetry monitor. The course explores how to interpret EKG changes in commonly seen diseases and important heart rhythm disturbances. This course introduces the student to the skills required for employment in an EKG stress testing laboratory, as well as an ambulatory EKG monitoring center. Upon successful completion of this course the student should be prepared the student to take the National Healthcare Association (NHA) Certified EKG Technician (CET) examination. Included in the cost of this course is one attempt at the CET examination, which will be scheduled by the instructor and is non-refundable and non-transferable.
