No. Our online ECG courses are ideal for continuing medical education or for further training as a student while enrolled in an accredited college or university program. But taking the courses alone does not issue an ECG or Monitor Technician capability.
Although we do not have a partnership with the program below, it has been recommended by clients:
The topics of Rhythms and 12-lead ECG are taught separately, primarily to accommodate our wide audience of participants. Many of our providers find the Animated Rhythms Course and ACLS Prep Course a convenient brush-up prior to sitting for certification or recertification exams. The topic of 12-lead ECG is covered comprehensively in the 12-lead ECG Course, the follow up 50 Case Study (review) Course and STEMI Mimic Review Courses.
If you have finished the course, you will need to submit your final exam for “final evaluation”. This should then take you to a page where you will select the best certificate of completion for your needs: General, CME or CE.
If you need to reprint a previously printed certificate, please login to your course, click “Continue Course” and you will be taken to the list of options from which you may print your certificate of completion. If it’s been more than one year since you completed your course, allow our customer support team several days to retrieve your file in our system. Contact Us.
