Electrocardiograph (EKG or ECG) technicians perform diagnostic tests to aid doctors in identifying and treating cardiovascular problems in patients. These tests help detect irregularities that may result in a heart attack or heart disease. Once the tests are administered, EKG technicians edit the data and highlight anomalies and areas of concern. They present it all to the presiding physicians so the doctors can interpret the information. Common duties include explaining procedures to patients, monitoring blood pressure, and positioning patients. EKG techs have a lot of direct patient interaction. They make appointments and explain procedures. MedCerts 15 week EKG technician certification training program will prepare you for national certification as a Certified EKG Technician (CET) and a Certified Customer Service Professional (CCSP). EKG/ECG technicians work in healthcare facilities specializing in EKG testing for patients. Upon completion of this program, graduates will then have met the training requirements to sit for the Certified EKG Technician (CET) exam sponsored by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA). Coordination of the externship and site location search begins approximately 4-6 weeks prior to the student’s end date.
