Certified Electrocardiogram Technician
Registration for cet is open
At a Glance
The Certified Electrocardiogram Technician (CET) program at Saint Joseph’s College offers students the opportunity to learn the knowledge necessary to become a CET, but also to learn the skills through hands-on and relevant learning. Before students are sent out for their clinical experiences, we replicate real-life situations in our new EKG lab; this allows our students to practice and perfect their learning and skills, including performing ten EKG’s on individuals (required for certification).
EKG Technicians usually work at hospitals or health clinics, however, some Technicians will work in doctors’ offices and private practices, but they will always work directly with patients. Patients who need electrocardiograms done will vary from someone who is getting a routine physical or someone who is being screened for surgery. Earning an EKG certification is an excellent starting point for a productive career path.
Upon completion of the course, students will be eligible to sit for their CET national certification. The certification is through the National Healthcareers Association; the exam fee is included in the registration fee.
In the Certified Electrocardiogram Technician program, the skills and topics you will learn include:
Scope of Practice of EKG Technician
Basic Anatomy & Physiology of the Heart
Intervals & Waveforms
EKG Analysis & Interpretation
Heart Rate & Rhythm
The average hourly pay for a Certified Electrocardiogram Technician is $12.00 – $15.00
The job outlook for CETs expected to grow much faster than average.
