ECG Technicians are responsible for performing electrocardiogram tests in hospitals and physician offices. These tests are used to monitor and record electrical impulses transmitted by the heart. The Tri-County Technical College course provides the student with instructions for collecting information and data about a patient's heart using electrocardiography. Topics include identifying heart rhythms, operation of a 12-lead electrocardiograph machine, treadmill stress tests and use of a Holter monitor, legal and professional aspects of patient contact. Additionally, our course assists students in preparation to take one of the national credentialing examinations, such as ASPT-EKG Technician or the certified EKG Technician exam through the National Healthcareer Association.
