ECG/EKG Technician program is a 50-hour program is ideal for healthcare providers seeking to enter the acute care or critical care environment, as well as prehospital care providers that work with ECG monitors. This course overviews the heart’s anatomy and physiology, cardiac cycle, electrical impulse and the basic criterial for a normal sinus rhythm. This course also teaches how to identify and respond to the following various Bradycardia, blocks, and Tachycardia. Additionally, this course teaches the learning to identify an Acute Myocardial Infarction and Ischemia by teaching the student to recognize Significant Q waves, Significant Q waves with ST Elevation, ST Segment Depression, and T wave Inversion.

Instructional Model:  This class is offered in hybrid format that includes online lectures, and classroom skills if included in course.
