CCT Certified Cardiographic Technician

Certified Cardiographic Technicians are allied health professionals who are trained to perform various diagnostic procedures as directed by a physician. The results of these procedures are used in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of patients suffering from cardiac diseases. Cardiographic Technicians are also sometimes referred to as Cardiology or Cardiac Technicians, as well as EKG Technicians. A Cardiographic Technician’s job requires taking EKGs, which traces electrical impulses transmitted by the heart, attaching the required electrodes to the patient s chest, arms, and legs, and then manipulating switches on an EKG machine to obtain a reading. The program offered by the Arizona Medical Training Institute provides an advanced form of EKG Technician training. In addition to learning how to monitor EKG machines and interpret EKG/ECG readouts, the curriculum includes training in Holter Monitoring and Stress Testing. Through a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on training, students are provided with the knowledge and practical experience needed to enter this rapidly growing profession.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES: 

  1. Learn how to efficiently perform rhythm and 12-lead EKG testing. 
  2. Be taught to evaluate and interpret the electrocardiograms. Holter Monitoring and Stress Testing techniques will also be introduced. 
  3. Learn Cardiovascular Anatomy and Physiology, Hypertrophy and Enlargement of the Heart, Arrhythmias, Conduction Blocks, and other key understandings pertinent to the CCT role.   
  4. Understand the business, marketing and legal issues associated with the profession. 
  5. Practice with EKG equipment and perform hands-on labs, including introduction to the function and proper use of the EKG machine and other clinical practices.
  6. Learn to obtain and interpret manual blood pressures
  7. Upon completion of the course, students will be eligible to sit for the National Examination through Cardiovascular Credentialing International Registry (CCI) to obtain their National Certification (CCT). Qualification to take the exam is the exclusive right of CCI, and AMTI maintains no involvement in the process.

POST GRADUATE OPPORTUNITIES AND REQUIREMENTS:

Due to the aging baby boomer population, the healthcare industry in general is expected to see a considerable increase in growth over the next decade. As the population continues to age, the rate of heart disease will become more prevalent and the demand for Cardiographic Technicians is expected to grow. The best employment opportunities would be for technicians and technologists trained in several procedures and holding multiple certifications. Graduates of this program can seek employment in hospitals, physicians’ offices, nursing homes, ambulatory care centers, and cardiologists’ offices. Cardiographic techs can improve their job prospects by sitting for the Certified Cardiographic Technician (CCT) exam offered by Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI).
