Teacher: Teri Weller

What you'll learn in this medical training:

EKG Technicians are responsible for performing electrocardiogram tests in order to monitor and record electrical impulses transmitted by the heart. These tests include basic EKGs, Holter Monitoring (portable EKG which records activity for 24-48 hrs.), 12 lead placement and Stress Tests (treadmill). They assist a physician in diagnosing and treating cardiac and blood vessel irregularities.



This course will include important practice and background information on anatomy of the heart and physiology, medical disease processes, medical terminology, medical ethics, legal aspects of patient contact, the Holter monitor, electrocardiography and echocardiography.



Additionally, students will practice with equipment and perform hands-on labs including
introduction to the function and proper use of the EKG machine, the normal anatomy of the chest wall for proper lead placement, 12-lead placement and other clinical practices. EKG Technicians also analyze printed readings of EKG tests, measuring various “cardiac intervals and complexes” and determining normal vs. abnormal EKG.

Job Outlook: EKG Technicians work in physician offices, hospitals, clinics, and other health care facilities and organizations. EKG Technicians also work for insurance companies to establish health and life insurance policies. Similar to other growing healthcare professions, the demand for EKG Technicians is expected to continue to grow substantially. The median wage in 2014 for EKG Technicians in California is $30.26/hr.

Certification: This comprehensive 50 hour EKG Technician Certification Program prepares students to function as EKG Technicians and to take the American Society of Phlebotomy Technician (ASPT) – Electrocardiograph (EKG) Technician exam in addition to other National Certification Exams.

Location notes:
  • Room numbers are provided to students once the registration is completed.

Question from CHIQUITA
Is this course accredited and are there fees for the books, materials, and tests?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Students don’t receive college credit for this course. To be certified they need to take and pass the EKG exam given to them on the last day of class. This exam is paid separately. Currently, the fee for the exam is $85. The textbook fee is included in the fee for the course.
