EKG Monitor Technician Course Description
EKG monitor technicians are responsible for watching patients’ heart rates and reporting important changes to the nursing staff; they often use equipment that tracks several patients simultaneously. EKG monitor technicians may also perform electrocardiographs (EKGs), which read electrical impulses sent by the heart.
EKG monitor technicians work in many different settings, including but not limited to hospitals, clinics and outpatient centers.
It can be confusing what a “Monitor Technician” is because hospitals will also use the job titles Telemetry Technician, Cardiac Monitor Technician, 12-Lead EKG Tech and more. The fact that nurses and nurse assistants are adding this becoming certified adds even more titles to the mix.
We provide the skills you need to work in any of these roles!
Certification and Licensure

The ECG module takes approximately 3.5 hours to complete, and the Pharmacology module takes about 2.75 hours to complete. When the modules are combined, the estimated course length is 6.25 hours. Upon successful completion of the course, all participants will receive a Same-Day Completion Card. Perfect for credentialed healthcare providers who either must or wish to supplement their training.
Some occupations demanding the course include
ECG & Pharmacology Course Description
This course is designed to improve electrocardiogram (ECG) recognition skills and pharmacology knowledge for treating cardiovascular emergencies. Through the help of professionals and knowledgeable instructors all the participants will be thoroughly informed of all the information as a job or other requirement. The ECG and Pharmacology course is an excellent introduction to the ACLS and PALS curriculum. This comprehensive course presents information on basic electrophysiology, normal ECG measurements, basic arrhythmias, basic ACLS drugs, usage and routes of administration during cardiovascular emergencies, and how to integrate basic drug pharmacology into ACLS algorithms.
