GNMT offers an EKG Technician training program that prepares students to perform confidently
and efficiently in a job where they are responsible for performing diagnostic tests to access the
heart rhythm and rate in patients. The EKG Technician performs diagnostic tests related to the
heart’s electrical impulses. The pattern and signals noted on the paper print-out can tell the
physician information about a person’s heart; whether it is normal, if the person is experiencing
electrical problems, under strain, or damaged.
EKG’s are performed in many settings: pre and post operations, during physicals, for patients
with history of heart disease, when patients are experiencing chest pains and whenever a
physician deems it necessary. The well-trained EKG technician is an integral part of the
management of patients with heart disease. At the end of the program, students will be eligible to
take the State and/or National Certification Exam for Electrocardiogram Technician.
Requirements: The person registering for this course must have a High School Diploma/GED
and a Georgia State Certification for Certified Nursing Assistant.
