TOP RATED by Online Reviews!


ECG Academy is the most comprehensive ECG program I’ve taken in 20 yrs as an ICU RN. These courses built upon and solidified the ECG skills I need now as a new NP. Top notch, high quality, very informative, educational, self-paced, hands on approach. Love the multiple short videos in each section. ECG Academy makes reading ECG’s fun! Highly recommended if you want the confidence and skills needed to understand and read ECG’s.

I have been a subscriber of yours for a few years and have often referred fellow RNs to your site, telling them that your site is the Gold Standard to learn the ins and outs of the EKG. I have been an ER RN for several years now and recently transferred to the EP Lab.  I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR COURSE!

We will show you how to diagnose basic and complex arrhythmias you may find on a rhythm strip.

"ChalkTalks" – Practice Your Skills

ChalkTalk Demo

One unique part of ECG Academy are the weekly ChalkTalks, which are 6-minute video tutorials based on a real rhythm strip or 12-lead ECG. These practical "how-to" lessons help you gain confidence in applying your knowledge to an unknown tracing. If you already know the basics, ChalkTalks help you improve your skills. You will learn how to read complex ECGs that don't look like the ones in the textbook!
