If you'd like to join the health care field and help people live longer, healthier lives, Daymar College's Cardiographic Technology Associate degree or diploma program can help you reach your goals. This program can prepare you to sit for state tests before seeking entry-level employment as a certified cardiographic technician and may prepare you to work in various medical settings all over the country.
As a technician, you may perform the tests, print out the readings and give them to the physician to read and interpret the results. EKG technicians typically work 40-hour weeks, but may often be needed to work unconventional hours. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of cardiovascular technologists and technicians, including vascular technologists, is projected to grow 22 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.
In our Cardiographic Technology programs, you can learn to administer and interpret rhythm and 12-lead EKG/ECG readouts. You'll also study Holter monitoring, stress testing and telemetry surveillance. Upon completion of the program, the successful student may apply to take the Certified Cardiographic Technician Examination to become a Certified Cardiographic Technician (CCT); this exam is available through Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI), an independent certification organization. The CCT is expected to be able to work in the critical care area as a monitoring technician.
We offer a variety of scheduling options to fit your busy life, and our helpful career services can increase your chances of success after graduation. Scholarships and financial aid are also available for those who qualify.
