The Cardiographic Technician certificate prepares students to use a variety of instruments and methods to perform diagnostic procedures such as Holter monitoring, stress testing, and electrocardiography. This type of work takes technicians into many different places and situations, from a relatively calm doctor’s office to a chaotic emergency room. The variety of workplace environments provides flexibility, challenges, and satisfaction. The certificate courses cover cardiac anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, ECG interpretation, and advanced cardiac diagnostics. Upon completion of this certificate, the student will be eligible to take the Certified Cardiographic Technician (CCT) examination. The CCT examination is for professionals working in the areas of ECG, Holter monitoring, and stress testing.

  1. Demonstrate understanding of theoretical concepts including the ability to collect and evaluate patient data; and recommend procedures to obtain additional data.
  2. Initiate, conduct, and independently modify prescribed therapeutic procedures and recommend modifications based on patient response.
