About the Program

Prepare for Certification

There are several EKG technician national certification exams that are available to students. The National Healthcareer Association (NHA) requires 10 EKGs on live individuals prior to challenging their Certified EKG Technician (CET) exam.

Our partners at Condensed Curriculum International/Health Ed Today can help you locate a facility in your area that can supervise the EKGs required for certification. You can request a placement from them once you complete the online course.

National and State Certification

While this course qualifies students for the national certification exams, if you live or plan to work outside of California, it is your responsibility to confirm that this program meets the certification requirements for your state.

The EKG Technician Profession

EKG technicians are in demand. EKG technicians work in physician's offices, hospitals, clinics and other healthcare facilities and organizations. EKG technicians also work for insurance companies to provide data for health and life insurance policies. Similar to other growing healthcare professions, the demand for EKG technicians is expected to continue to grow substantially.
