The Healthcare employee with EKG Technician training is a medical practitioner who administers tests to determine the cardiovascular health of patients. Their primary duties include performing diagnostic tests on patients, keeping patients informed on every step of the procedure, monitoring patient blood pressure, perform various tests on a patient’s heart and lungs, though primarily they perform electrocardiograms (EKGs).

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of EKG Techs and cardiovascular technologists is projected to grow 14 percent from 2020 to 2030, faster than the average for all occupations. About 12,000 openings for cardiovascular technologists are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.

The EKG Technician student will complete instructional and simulation laboratory procedures for a period of up to 14 weeks in length. Successful completion of all courses is required to receive a program certificate of completion.
