Take your medical career to the next level. EKG and Phlebotomy positions are available in a variety of settings, including hospitals and labs. This Electrocardiogram (EKG) and Phlebotomy course is ideal for CNAs and other patient care professionals who want to become Certified Patient Care Technicians (PCT).

EKG technicians are responsible for performing electrocardiogram tests in order to record and monitor electrical impulses transmitted by the heart. This assists a physician in diagnosing and treating cardiac and blood vessel irregularities. These tests include basic EKGs, Holter Monitoring (portable EKG which records activity for 24-48 hrs.), and Stress Tests (treadmill). Phlebotomy School Chicago’s EKG training classes in Chicagoland can help you launch a fulfilling career as an EKG and phlebotomy technician.
