Program overview
The need for Monitor Technicians intensified in hospitals, clinics and physicians' offices within the last decade. New standards were set and a shift from on-the-job training to formal training developed to ensure qualified technicians. Monitor technicians are responsible for monitoring and recording crucial electrical data from the heart. The data collected is used in diagnosing and treating cardiac and blood vessel irregularities.
