Welcome to Phlebotomy Career Training ;

                                                       At PCT we are pleased to announce our new online Telemetry Technician Course, or Cardiac Arrhythmia Technician course, as it is known is other circles.  The burgeoning field of Telemetry continues to grow across the U.S..  The newest , most in demand job in hospitals is  the Telemetry Technician.  One needs only to search online to see the numerous jobs for Telemetry  Technician across the U.S.  PCT is proud to be at the forefront of this field.  The online class that PCT offers will help students learn to recognize and interpret 24 different cardiac rhythms.  This course was developed by an ICU/CCU nurse and local Cardiologists with the layperson in mind.  The course teaches students to how to recognize and interpret arrhythmia’s.  “Having a trained extra set of eyes on the monitors gives us the nurses and doctors a peace of mind, while of course, more importantly preventing unnecessary complications that can arise without someone monitoring cardiac rhythms constantly.”

Garden City, MI (PRWEB) FEBRUARY, 2012



Phlebotomy Career Training, is pleased to announce the New Telemetry Technician Certification Course available for all health care professionals and students.

Earning a certification in telemetry and ECG will allow students to get jobs as telemetry technicians and enhance their credentials as a qualified health-care professional. Students can add extra earning power to their degrees with this one week course. Students are able to sit for the National Telemetry Association  Certification upon course completion. Students are requested to have completed an externship in ECG and should know how to apply leads.

Why wait? The same course goes for over $5000 to $10,000 dollars at local community colleges and technical health career schools. Phlebotomy Career Training is offering the course for $459.
The National Telemetry Association test fee is included. Nurses, LPN, LVN’s, Medical Technologist, Medical Assistants, Certified Nursing Assistants and the lay public who are interested in the medical field are all welcome to take the online telemetry .   Hospitals are looking for those who can multitask, so adding a telemetry certification will help solidify ones current position. Students can work most anywhere if they have the knowledge to interpret ECG’s and have a thorough understanding of the cardiovascular system. School should be affordable to everyone; at Phlebotomy Career Training students get quality education at an affordable price.

The Telemetry ECG Certification Course is similar in content to the course that Physicians and Registered Nurses must complete upon hiring into hospitals. The course helps students to read and interpret ECG Lead Tracings. Students will learn to interpret such rhythms as Atrial Fibrillation, Ventricular Tachycardia, Premature Ventricular and Atrial contractions, Type I, II and III heart blocks and many more. In addition students are trained in the mechanism of action regarding the bio-metabolism of heart medications such as beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, Calcium channel blockers as well as cardiac glycosides. The rennin-angiotensen cascade will be studied in relation to how high blood pressure effects the cardiac muscles and the renal system. The EKG or ECG course will cover the entire anatomy and physiology of the heart muscle, and delve into the rhythmicity and excitability of cardiac tissue. Students learn to correlate the different heart medications to specific cardiac rhythms.

Professor Kimmel’s undergraduate work in biochemistry at the University of Michigan and toxicology at Kansas State have paved the way for the plethora of knowledge that Professor Kimmel can impart to students. Professor Kimmel’s PhD thesis detailed the toxicology of cardiac specific medications. Dr. Kimmel experience as an Registered Nurse includes working in the cardiac care unit, ICU, intermediate intensive care and medical surgical units.

Professor Kimmel States; “This is a very serious course. Students who consider taking this course should have some prior experience in the medical field and direct patient care skills. This course requires interpretation of actual cardiac rhythm strips. Although a telemetry technicians interpretation will be reviewed by a registered nurse and physician, technicians should be aware that immediate changes in the cardiac rhythm could be fatal. With that said, students should be ready to perform CPR. This is a course that is designed for those with experience in the health care field and that have some familiarity with cardiac leads and telemetry. Students should be prepared to purchase a caliper. These can be purchased at any uniform or medical supply store. For the ECG tracings, students should be able to print off the various strips to be interpreted. Students will need the calipers for their final exam.

The instructor of the course, Professor Nancy Kimmel is a Registered Nurse, ACLS Certified, a Certified Hazardous Materials Manager, Certified Phlebotomy Instructor, Certified Nurses Aide Trainer, PhD and a Basic Life Support Instructor through the American Heart Association. Professor Kimmel has worked in ICU, CCU, Intermediate Intensive care, Emergency, medical surgical floors and has done home-care. Professor Kimmel has been an ardent instructor in the Metro Detroit area since 2002. She has taught Mechanical Engineering at Lawrence Technological University, math, physics and engineering at Henry Ford Community College, Mechanical Engineering at Oakland University as well as authoring a best selling nursing entrance textbookwhich Wayne County Community College and Henry Ford Community College offer for sale in their book stores. Professor Kimmel holds a United States Patent on a revolutionary air filter and is currently working on helping the nation further their education with other affordable online courses, like the newly released Phlebotomy online course.

Phlebotomy Career Training is a licensed proprietary school in the state of Michigan.

Testimonial from a former online student;

Dear Nancy,
I would like to take a moment of your time to express my gratitude.  I am in the second week of the online telemetry tech course.  I am grateful for your patience in helping me get started and your directions in updating my search engines and internet access.
This online course will be an asset on my resume.  I am planning on applying for a position in the telemetry department at the hospital I am currently employed with.  The department was excited to hear about this course.
It enables me to still continue with my present work schedule and conduct my studies at my convenience.
Once again, thank you.
God Bless
Anna Knapp


  1. Hello Joy.
    Congratulations. Well, now I have some great news, first of all the National Telemetry Association certification is recognized internationally as well as throughout the U.S., secondly, the NTA now offers the National/International ECG certification. Both of these national exams are included in the ECG/Telemetry Class for the price $350. This is an amazing price and we are pleased to offer it to all of our online students. You should have little trouble with grasping the material being that you have ACLS training and are a Nurse.
    Welcome my Canadian Neighbor,
    Nancy Kimmel RN, PhD

  10. you need at least 60 hours of training, in person or internship in order to work in Telementry. Do you have hospital that you are affiliated with. how do you get your hands on training if your class is only online.

  11. Dear Gail;

    Students in our online course have up to 6 months to complete their studies. Most of our graduate students in our telemetry class online are very well qualified to work in telemetry as monitor technicians without the hands on experience. This is due to the monitor test strips which our students are given to practice.

    Thanks for your inquiry,

  12. Hello, I need a 60 hour course in order to sit for the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) exam. Would your course satisfy the prerequisite? Because NHA will need something in writting from your program / and or Certificate confirming the 60 hours. Thanks

  14. Hello Aizhanna;

    That is a very good question. My first thought would be to get in touch with the 2 national accrediting agencies with which we partner with, ie. AMCA and the NCCT. Each of these organizations are nationally accredited and recognize our Medical Assistant Program. I have included links to their websites below.
    American Medical Certification Association
    National Center for Competency Testing

    Best Wishes on your future classes,
    Nancy Kimmel PhD, MSN-FNP-BC

  18. I am interested in the EKG/Telemetry class, i live in South Carolina will i have a problem? Is there any additional requirements?
    Thank you.

  19. Hello Lisa
    The EKG/Telemetry course tuition cost is $350 students have up to 6 months to complete the program this course includes ekg,telemetry,national ekg exam, and national telemetry exam students are required to complete 40 hours of ekg clinical hours. For more information please contact our office at 734-762-3220 Mon-Fri 9-6 pm Saturday 9-1 pm

    Thank You

  20. What is the advantage of taking the ekg telemetry class vs the telemetry class alone? Since both job title essentially is a monitor tech. It can’t be a pay raise because you won’t be ekg certified until after you had already been hired, offered a certain pay, and worked 40 hours right? So by then your pay is your pay. Is there a way to be ekg certified before searching for work? where would one perform their clinical hours?

  21. I am Interested to take EKG Telemetry online course $350.00. What is the timeline to finish the courses included? Basically it will take up to 6months right, but could I take it less than 6 months?

  22. Hello Jonas
    With this course you do have up to 6 months to complete the program students can finish in less than 6 months for more information please contact our office at 734-762-3220 Mon-Fri 9-5 pm

  23. Hello , I would like to take the National EKG Telemetry exam on Tuesday November 21, 2017 if possible. I know that there is a course final exam before the national exam. Is that the exam in the back of the book or do you need to send it out?

    Thank you,

  24. Hello Danielle
    You would need to print out the telemetry final take that exam and turn it into your instructor once your instructor has graded your exam with a passing score then you can take the national telemetry exam whenever you are ready to take that exam that exam is taken online

    Thank You

  25. Hello,

    I was just wondering whether I need to fax the EKG/ Telemetry Technician final exam or send it by mail, if so do I send it to the address on the class textbook? I am taking this course online and live in Massachusetts so I was wondering how long it would take for the school to receive it, and how soon I can take the national exam?

    Thank you,

  26. Hello Danielle
    You can fax email or mail us your final once we have received your exams and they have been graded with a passing grade you can take the national exam

    Thank You
