Hi, my name is Joel Canfield. I'm the administrator for Capital Cardiovascular, in Austin, Texas, and I want to talk for a few moments, about how to become a cardiology technician, so the cardiology technician spans the scope of a few different subspecialties, within cardiology, but generally, there's a two year associates degree, kind of connected to that degree. There's also a two year, or eighteen month technical college training program, that can get you to the same place. The third direction, is some folks train on the spot, as there is no professional license to this job. You can find the experience through a normal hospital venue, or a physician office opportunity. Those would be the normal routes you'd go through. Some of the core elements that would be consistent throughout any of those three directions, would be EKG training, stress test training, and general knowledge of the heart, and essentially, that's the path you'll take to become a cardiology technician.
