Cardiac technology courses are offered in cardiovascular technology certificate and associate diploma programs. Courses teach students about heart health and cardio testing procedures. Through these courses, students learn and put into practice the skills they need to become cardiac technologists.
Cardiac technologists can specialize in invasive and/or non-invasive cardiovascular technology. Some educational programs provide curricula for both specialties, while others offer an option to only study non-invasive technology. Most certificate and associate diploma programs include a combination of clinical experiences and lecture-based classroom sessions.
Students of cardiac technology learn about the following concepts:
Echocardiography and stress test administration Heart anatomy and function Heart-monitoring equipment operation Data collection for diagnostic purposes Treatment plans
