EKG Training

Basic EKG is designed to teach the basic skills of reading an EKG to individuals with no prior EKG knowledge. Because our versatile EKG education is designed to meet the ever changing schedules of today's EMT's, students may choose to attend our standard classroom course or select to complete the training totally online. Please read the following two course options carefully before deciding whether to apply for the classroom course or the online course.
