This comprehensive Cardiac Monitor Technician Certification Course prepares students to function as Cardiac Monitor Technicians in the acute healthcare setting. This course will include fundamental information on anatomy and physiology of the heart and cardiovascular system, medical disease processes, medical terminology, medical legal ethics, and communication with other healthcare team members, and intensive ECG monitor strip interpretations. Additionally, students will spend 28 hours participating in the clinical environment working with Cardiac Monitor Technicians.
Cardiac monitor technicians, also known as telemetry technicians, monitor multiple patient’s heart activity and interpret heart rhythms from a central monitoring center covering multiple acute care locations. They play a vital role in the lives of cardiac patients and are a critical member of the health care team.
Employment of cardiac monitor technicians is projected to increase by 22 percent from 2014 to 2024, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Technicians work in settings such as hospitals, and diagnostic medical laboratories. Starting hourly wage is $11.
