Upon completion of this certificate, students wishing to sit for the Certified EKG Technician exam will be required to complete a minimum of 10 EKGs on a live person. AdventHealth cannot guarantee a site to complete this clinical requirement, so only students employed in a health care facility or those that take full responsibility for meeting their clinical requirements will be admitted to the certificate.
