Professionals have to fulfill requirements for continuing education in order to maintain licensing. ECG Academy can provide approved CE contact hours to nurses, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Even physicians may be able to claim CME credits. The ECG Academy offers a Modular, Self-Paced, Graded ECG Certificate Program!
By incorporating ECG Academy's unique video tutorials into an educational framework, we are able to track each participant's progress. The Sections in the Level 1 (Advanced Rhythm Strip Analysis) and Level 2 (12-lead Interpretation) courses each have 3-5 videos, each 5-15 minutes long, that cover a particular topic. At the end of each section there is a short quiz to reinforce the information and to measure your proficiency. As of November 2019 ALL of the quizzes have all been completely rewritten. Plus, there is a collection of "Essential ChalkTalks" at the end of each level, to help you practice analyzing unknown tracings. At the end of the each Level there is a final exam. Completion of the program qualifies the participant to receive a "Certificate of Completion," with nursing, NP, or PA CME/CEU contact hours and physician Category 2 CME equivalents. The Certificate Courses can even open new doors for individuals who would like to start a career as a telemetry or ECG technician.
The ECG Academy video subscription service was originally offered as a "do-it-yourself" educational experience... those motivated to watch the video tutorials will gain tremendous insight and skill. But if you want credit for the time and effort you have put into becoming an ECG Expert, the Certificate Course can give you that. Once you've completed the Course, you can continue to watch the videos to maintain your understanding of the material or subscribe to the weekly ChalkTalks to sharpen your skills at reading more difficult tracings.
