How CERTIFICATE COURSES work



Practicing  Physicians Can Now Earn CMEs
NEW and IMPROVED Certificate Courses

ACCME Logo

Beginning in 2024, Physicians can earn up to 38 hours of Category 1 CME towards fulfilling requirements for continuing education in order to maintain licensing!

The Certificate Courses offered by ECG Academy are already rated 4.9 (out of 5) on Trustpilot. In 2024 a major upgrade to the Certificate Course will now offer Category 1 CMEs to MDs, DOs, NPs, PA, and nurses and techs who want to be able to "Read Different." Learn to analyze ECGs like an Electrophysiologist! These courses can also be used by medical students, interns, residents and fellows who are interested in pursuing a career in cardiology or internal medicine and need to be comfortable reading complex rhythm strips and 12-lead ECGs. 

Physicians all have difficult schedules, and the ability to go through a self-paced video program with all new practice questions would allow you to get through the course without taking time off from work. The courses are more comprehensive than any other online ECG course and much easier to understand than an advanced ECG textbook. Plus, the included weekly ChalkTalks are practical coaching videos designed to help you read complex ECG, a skill that you are called upon to perform every day.

How Do The Certificate Courses Work? 

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. After the videos there are Practice Questions to ensure your understanding, followed by short quiz to reinforce the information and to measure your proficiency. The Certificate Courses offer larger, clearer ECG graphic elements and extensive feedback on each quiz question. There is a collection of "Essential ChalkTalks" near 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 with the earned hours of CME awarded. You'll also receive access to ECG Academy's weekly ChalkTalks, which are invaluable to help you tackle more difficult tracings. Please note: It generally takes up to 24 hours before you can be enrolled after you purchase a Certificate Course.

Why Not Just Watch The Video Tutorials?

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 and the weekly ChalkTalks to sharpen your skills at reading more difficult tracings. Medical schools and residency programs can arrange for group discounts so the entire class can benefit from the training that the Certificate Courses provide, and you can present the certificate to your program director for credit towards your training.


Testimonials From Real Users:



What Are Medical Websites Saying About ECG Academy...

"The videos are superbly produced, mimicking the best bedside pen and paper teaching sessions. However the videos have a major advantages – a bona fide expert teacher, no interruptions, and the ability to revisit topics whenever you want. This is ‘asynchronous learning’ at its best."

Which Plan To Choose?

  • If you need CE/CME or a "Certificate of Completion," choose a Certificate Course
  • If you want the challenge and feedback of quizzes and a final exam along the way, but don't need CE/CME, choose a Hybrid Course
  • If you don't need a "formal" course but just want to learn to read ECGs by watching videos, choose a monthly membership (or save money with an annual membership plan)
  • If you just need to know cardiac rhythm strips and arrhythmias, choose Level 1 course or the Basic membership plan
  • If you need to be able to read 12-lead ECGs, choose a Level 1+2 course or the Advanced membership plan
  • If you already know how to read ECGs but want to delve deeper into the nuances of arrhythmias and electrophysiology, choose the Expert membership plan
  • If you already know how to read ECGs but need practice dealing with complex or "tricky" tracings, choose the "ChalkTalks Only" plan. You can always upgrade to the Expert plan for additional insight
