Certified EKG Technicians perform the critical tasks of administering electrocardiograms (EKGs) as well as Holter monitoring and stress testing. These tests can be performed during physical exams, when cardiovascular problems are suspected, or in preparation for surgery. The majority of technicians work in hospitals, physicians’ offices and medical and diagnostic laboratories. Students must attend 100% of the classes (make-up time available), receive a minimum grade of 70 and satisfactory on all lab evaluations to pass the program.
Must be 18 years old with a high school diploma or GED
