The certificate program is an option within the CVT Degree Program. Students learn to apply and interpret rhythm strips, 12-Lead EKG’s and halter monitors. Courses and labs are held on campus and at clinical sites. Students may apply to continue in the Cardiovascular Technology degree program after completion of required additional coursework. Graduates may apply to take the national certification examination to become a Certified Cardiographic Technician (CCT).

Disclosure Regarding Programs for Professional Licensure or Certification

Some programs at Carroll Community College (CCC) are designed to meet educational requirements for a specific professional licensure or certification that is required for employment in an occupation.

If you are an out-of-state student seeking professional licensure in a state other than Maryland and you are taking a course or program leading to professional licensure or certification, CCC currently does not guarantee that the course or program meets requirements for professional licensure or certification anywhere other than Maryland. We encourage all students, especially out-of-state students, to contact the appropriate state (or District of Columbia or U.S. territory) licensing board or agency where you intend to work to familiarize yourself with the state educational, licensing, and/or certification requirements.
