Completing our EKG Training series will prepare you for National Certification as an EKG Technician.
EKG Technicians perform EKGs to monitor and record electrical impulses transmitted by the heart. Many work in hospital settings, while others work in physicians' offices and diagnostic laboratories. You will learn basic cardiovascular anatomy and physiology, disease processes, patient preparation, arrhythmia identification, common pharmacological agents, legal considerations, and stress testing. Learn the function and use of the EKG machine and the Holter monitor, lead placement, and infection control.
According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, the 2015 median pay for an EKG Technician was $27,830 per year. Employment is expected to grow 24% from 2015-2024, faster than the national average.
Approximate cost of the program is $1,570, not including textbooks and materials.
