National Healthcareer Association
National Healthcareer Association (NHA) is one of the nation’s largest allied health certification providers. Since 1989, the NHA has helped thousands of schools across the nation produce better professionals and better program outcomes. Individuals who pass their certification exam will be recognized as Nationally Certified Healthcare professionals and will earn credentials to use with their name, a certification ID card and a certificate. To be eligible to earn an NHA certification, a candidate must possess a high school diploma or the equivalent and be at least 18 years of age.
A Certified EKG Technician (CET) certification is ideal for those looking to join the healthcare industry and learn the in-demand field of electrocardiography. Gaining your EKG credential and passing the CET certification exam through the nationally accredited NHA (National Healthcareer Association) will make your career more competitive.
Upon completion of this program, students wishing to sit for the Certified EKG Technician exam will be required to complete a minimum of 10 EKGs on a live person. MedCerts cannot guarantee a site to complete this clinical requirement, so only students employed in a healthcare facility or those that take full responsibility for meeting their clinical requirements will be admitted to the program.

I was a little skeptical
“Before attending MedCerts I was a little skeptical about taking a medical-related course online, but once I got through the course I realized I retained all of the information I was taught in each lesson. I was able to pass the practice exam, and I memorized quite a lot of the work. I will recommend reading the supplemental links they give that are optional. They helped me a lot. I had a very supportive advisor. She kept in contact every step of the way! You get more than enough time to finish without feeling rushed or overwhelmed.”
