Course Overview

Ready to get certified for one of the most widely hired roles in healthcare? This program is designed to help you pass the Certified EKG Technician (CET) exam and set you up for success as part of a fast-paced cardiology team. You’ll learn how to operate the electrocardiogram - an essential piece of hospital equipment - and work with doctors to interpret the results for patients. You’ll even complete a hands-on clinical experience, so if you’re ready to jump into the action ASAP, EKG technician training is the course of action for you. Remember that clinical opportunities vary, and we work with a vast network of healthcare organizations to find a good fit. This is an online self-paced program - allowing you to study and learn around your schedule! The course is 395 hours with 8 month access and an optional externship placement for 20 hours.

Course includes:

  • Learner support: 1-on-1 learner support through out the program
  • Career support: resume review & job coaching
  • Exam preparation for the nationally recognized CET.
  • (1) free voucher to take the Certified EKG Technician (CET) exam from the National Healthcareer Associatio

What You'll Learn

Our program is divided into 14 easy-to-finish modules and an externship experience (and it covers skills many EKG tech programs don’t, such as Holter monitoring and stress testing). Knock ‘em out and start your new job as a diagnostic dynamo.
