This flexible study day has been designed to meet the needs of registered practitioners who work in clinical settings where continuous cardiac monitoring is performed and/or 12-lead ECG interpretation skills are required. Candidates requiring rhythm recognition skills alone can opt to attend the morning (9am - 12pm) session only.
Alternatively, practitioners may complete the entire study day (9am-4pm) and cover both rhythm recognition in the morning and 12-lead ECG interpretation in the afternoon*. If you would like to complete the full day, then please book on to the Introduction to 12 Lead ECG Interpretation study day.
*Please note that attendance at the morning ‘introduction to rhythm recognition’ is a pre-requisite for completion of the afternoon ‘introduction to 12-lead ECG interpretation’.
Course content is perfect and very relevant. Instructor is very clear & simplified it to our understanding. Course material is very good.
This course has improved my confidence
