Can someone let me know if they have ever seen, taken, or heard of an online monitor tech program? I am an EMT and I recently got a job at a hospital as a monitor tech and they are requiring me to get a "certification". I have done my research and I have found that there seems to be many entities that "nationally certify" :dead:...... this being said, a little help would be wonderful!

If your facility requires certification, they should tell you how to get it. I don't know if they have an online course, but the American Heart Association has the only certification that was accepted by my previous hospital employers.

Good luck, telemetry interpretation is challenging.
