What Does the EKG Technician Course Cover?
Designed to help students sit for the EKG Technician Certification (CET) exam offered by the National Healthcare Association (NHA), this course was developed to teach students the skills needed to interpret a range of EKG test results. The curriculum also provides students with the opportunity to learn and practice key job skills that would be required of a practicing EKG technician. Background on the concepts underlying this skill set, such as an understanding of the heart’s anatomy and a background in the physiological patterns that generate a range of EKG test results, are also covered to help prepare students for a career as an EKG technician or in an associated healthcare field such as telemetry where a practical knowledge of the heart and cardiovascular system are valued.
During your EKG Technician training program, you will develop essential skills required by physicians’ offices, emergency care clinics and hospitals. These include how to properly document rhythm strips, which are used by doctors to accurately determine EKG results.
