Hi, my name is Joel Kenfield. I'm the administrator for Capital Cardiovascular in Austin, Texas and I want to tell you about what it takes to become a cardiovascular technician and what schooling and training you go through it to become one. So specifically, in general there's about a two-year degree, an Associate College or a eighteen-month to two-year training specialty school or there's a ten-year like an internship at a, on-the-job type scenario. Some of the specific things you're going to go through in that training would be: Electro-Cardiogram training, stress test supervision, a general knowledge of the heart, a general knowledge of blood pressures and vital signs and some of those things. Taking all that knowledge, putting into a context-base scenario to where you're using all those elements, essentially from one task while you're looking at vascular testing, eco-cardiography testing, nuclear profusion testing, general stress supervision. All of those elements go into a cardiovascular technician's training and schooling.
