A Certified EKG Technician (CET) administers and interprets EKG tests in a variety of clinical settings including hospitals and physicians’ offices. The Certified EKG Technician (CET) prepares and educates patients prior to collecting valuable diagnostic data that is used by the physician to determine cardiovascular functions/rhythm.

Each student will be prepared to assist physicians in proper placement of EKG lead using their knowledge of 3-lead, 5-lead or 12 lead electrodes on patients.


Students will be grounded with a solid understanding of human anatomy, EKG theory, EKG application and monitoring, stress testing, and infection control, patient care, and HIPPA rule/confidentiality. The program will provide students with the clinical, technical, and professional skills they need to be successful in the health care industry. Upon completion of the five (5) week program, students will have the clinical knowledge and proficiency required of the EKG Technician and will be prepared to take the National Certification examination through the National Healthcare Association (NHA). Upon successful completion of the EKG (Electrocardiograph) Technician program, the student will be awarded a Certificate of completion in EKG.
