Our EKG class uses engaging exercises to teach students not only the “how” but also the “why” of Electrocardiography.  Students will learn EKG interpretation by key focus areas, such as PR interval, QRS width, appearance of waves, and more. In addition, students will learn pharmacology for abnormal ECG rhythms. This course also includes a discussion on electrical cardioversion, defibrillation, and pacing. All in all, students will learn to identify sinus, atrial, junctional, and ventricular arrhythmias. Our Basic EKG Interpretation course also includes extensive rhythm strip practice to build competency. Indeed, any ECG class can be extremely overwhelming. Nonetheless, a healthcare provider’s basic skill should include EKG interpretation.

What sets NEO apart is that we genuinely care about your learning needs because we understand that everyone learns differently. Unlike many training centers, we never teach our students to memorize a strip. Our goal is to teach our learners how to visualize what occurs in the heart during an arrhythmia. Additionally, our ECG class covers all the concepts required to pass a hospital entry-level exam. With NEO’s Basic EKG class, you will surely increase your chances of passing the entry-level exam. Moreover, an EKG certification opens doors to many opportunities and we facilitate that process with inspired teaching.
