Allied Health Courses
This course prepares students to work as Certified EKG technicians (CET), a rapidly growing occupation. The need for qualified EKG technicians continues to rise as the aging population in America grows. Earning a CET will help launch a successful and meaningful career. Students will also receive assistance with career planning and job readiness skills to further enhance their marketability.
Students who successfully complete the 60 hour course will be eligible to take the Certified EKG Technician (CET) national certification exam. Students who pass the exam are granted the title of Certified EKG Technician (CET). As a Certified EKG Technician (CET), students will have the credentials nearly all healthcare employers require to perform critical tasks of administering EKGs, as well as Holter monitoring and stress testing. These tests can be performed during physical exams, when cardiovascular problems are suspected, or in preparation for surgery.
