COVID-19 UPDATE: We are open and continue to serve our students. Learn More about our Fall 2020 plans.
A continuing upward trend in hiring for EKG techs has put candidates trained in electrocardiograms (EKG’s), stress testing and Holter monitors in demand throughout the healthcare industry. Bryant & Stratton College’s EKG Technician certificate program provides students with the key skills needed to fill positions as EKG Technicians throughout the industry.
Pre-licensing training for Life, Accident and Health insurance testing prepares students for the state licensing exam through curriculum that meets the 40 hour pre-licensing requirement for New York State. Students work through 24 hours of in-class work along with additional home-study requirements that combine to meet the requirement for the pre-licensing exam.
Due to COVID-19, our classroom-based Phlebotomy and EKG programs are currently on hold. Our plan is to offer these classes as soon as it is safe to do so. Our clinical programs have a large component of hands-on practice and skill, taking social distancing measures and health and safety precautions are essential to continue to hold these courses in the future.
Please contact a representative in your area to learn more about our programs and/or to be put on a waiting list for future classes:

The EKG Technician training program combines classroom study with practical work that hones real-world workplace skills in conjunction with the critical theory and practice taught through in-class lectures. Coursework prepares students to sit for the Certified EKG Technician (CET) exam, a national exam that credentials EKG techs. Preparation for the CET exam highlights the key competencies taught through the classwork, giving the student the opportunity to earn a national credential to couple with their in-class and hands-on training.
Through a combination of in-class and hands-on training the EKG program at Bryant & Stratton College provides the necessary ekg classes to sit for the Certified EKG Technician exam and eventually a job as an EKG tech. Classes in basic healthcare terminology, ethics and anatomy combine with detailed courses in administering an EKG and an internship experience provides a wide-range of training for students in the EKG program*. The courses below make up the EKG certificate program.
*Internships are not available at the Rochester campus.
