6-Month Cardiology Technician Program
Go with the leader in allied health training, since 1947, at Carnegie Institute in Michigan.
Our online and practical application classes (hybrid training) provide thorough, comprehensive education and working knowledge of required skills and competencies. Develop confidence in small class sizes, one-on-one instruction, and competent, experienced faculty. Find out why medical employers depend on Carnegie graduates.
Cardiology Technician students are trained to perform non-invasive testing (ECG) procedures that provide valuable recorded data in cardiac medical evaluation. Training emphasizes basic and advanced electrocardiology and electrocardiography. Ample ECG equipment is utilized to provide extensive hands-on training. Class size is limited to assure close supervision during classroom and practical application of various procedures.
The core curriculum includes the following:
- Anatomy & Physiology/Pathophysiology
- Therapeutic Communications/HIPAA
- Basic ECG (EKG) waveform morphology
- Advanced ECG (EKG) waveform morphology
- Abnormal ECG (EKG) Rhythms/Arrhythmias
- Cardiovascular Pharmacology
- Ultrasound Physics
- Vital Signs
- IV Administration
- Patient Assessment
- Basic medical electronics & instrumentation
This program also provides an understanding of the following:
- Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in ECG
- Exercise stress testing and pacemaker rhythm recognition
- Competence in the recognition & interpretation of abnormal ECG (EKG) rhythms.
Due to the technical nature of this program, students must have prior allied health training, recent clinical work experience, and college credits in anatomy & physiology, math, and science.
