EKG Technician Schools

Becoming an EKG Technician begins with formal training. The only prerequisite is that you have completed your high school diploma or GED. There are now several certificate and associate degree programs that can be completed in a relatively short period of time. Some of these programs are part of a larger cardiovascular technology program which allows the student to become educated and trained on EKG monitoring. Those who wish the become certified in holter monitoring generally need to take additional courses as the procedure requires more in depth training, skill, and understanding.
