Instructor: Nancy L. Kimmel RN, PhD, CHMM, CPI, CNAT

Course Description:

This is a 24 hour course that is offered online or in class.  All students will need calipers to take this course. Online students may take up to six months to complete the course.

Login Access for the course;  Go to http://www.phlebotomycareertraining.com

Next : go to ‘COURSE LOGIN”

On the drop down box go to: Telemetry 301

This will get you into the course.  Your teacher will follow up with an email giving you a personal login user name and password, along with course documents.  You may contact the teacher with questions regarding the course after 7PM EST.  Professor Kimmel’s  telephone is 313-826-2381. 

EKG student’s must submit proof of previous EKG experience to obtain the EKG Technician Certification.

The purpose of this course is to train students to read and interpret 22 types of cardiac lead tracings produced from 12 and five lead monitors.  Certified by the National Telemetry Association the ECG with Telemetry encompasses topics such as the anatomy and physiology of the heart, etiology of hypertension and cardiovascular disease, pharmacology of various heart and blood pressure medications.  The Telemetry online course covers biomedical mechanisms of a twelve lead ECG, over twenty different cardiac rhythms and arrhythmia’s.    A cardiac rhythm that is most important for any telemetry technician to recognize is that of a myocardial infarction.  A person suffering from a myocardial infarction, depending on the location of the area of ischemia, complains of some of the following symptoms; sweating, chest pain (described as a crushing feeling), pain radiating in the interior of the left arm, jaw pain (dull ache), trouble breathing, (dyspena), nausea and or vomiting.  Not everyone who sustains a myocardial infarction has the same symptoms or all the symptoms.  The most telling sign of a myocardial infarction on an electrocardiogram are the widened QRS complexes, flattened or depressed ST segment and depressed or elevated T waves. 

                When learning to interpret ECG’s (electrocardiograms) students are first trained to understand the anatomy of the heart and the heart’s electrical conduction pathway.  Once the students are able to demonstrate their ability to diagram and explain this pathway they are next taught how to read the lead tracing grid that all electrocardiograms are traced on. 

                The students who learn to interpret electrocardiogram rhythms are acutely responsible for what they interpret.  Although a registered nurse and or physician are ultimately responsible for the final interpretation, the telemetry technician is the first responder when noticing any rhythm that could be considered fatal or life threatening.   Therefore, it is very important for the telemetry technician to be adept at reading and interpreting the lead tracings especially the actual lead tracing of a dangerous cardiac rhythm.  

Course prerequisites for Online or in Class: no previous experience required

 Online: One month to six months from time of purchase (student is required to put in a maximum of 24 hours of study time.)

In Class:  This is a 3 day course consisting of eight hour days typically from 8-5:30PM with a half hour for lunch.

Course Details:

The students will be emailed a login in code for the website and those in class will be given the login code as well as the printed version of the online materials as a study guide.  They will login in under Courses and click on the Telemetry Course.  There, they will enter their password.  Students will have access to the website and the contents for six weeks.  After one month the student will be required to contact their instructor Nancy Kimmel to obtain the final exam.   The exam can be sent via their e-mail, U.S mail or fax. All exams are to be returned to instructor within five working days after receipt.  Students are requested to call instructor for preference of exam delivery method either by phone: 313-826-2381 or by e-mail:


Students will be notified of their score. The passing score that is required is a 75% or better.

Successful students will receive a certificate as a Telemetry Technician and a letter of course completion from Phlebotomy Career Training School in Garden City, Michigan.

Welcome to Phlebotomy Career Training ;

                                                       At PCT we are pleased to announce our new online Telemetry Technician Course, or Cardiac Arrhythmia Technician course, as it is known is other circles.  The burgeoning field of Telemetry continues to grow across the U.S..  The newest , most in demand job in hospitals is  the Telemetry Technician.  One needs only to search online to see the numerous jobs for Telemetry  Technician across the U.S.  PCT is proud to be at the forefront of this field.  The online class that PCT offers will help students learn to recognize and interpret 24 different cardiac rhythms.  This course was developed by an ICU/CCU nurse and local Cardiologists with the layperson in mind.  The course teaches students to how to recognize and interpret arrhythmia’s.  ”Having a trained extra set of eyes on the monitors gives us the nurses and doctors a peace of mind, while of course, more importantly preventing unnecessary complications that can arise without someone monitoring cardiac rhythms constantly.”

Garden City, MI (PRWEB) FEBRUARY, 2012



Phlebotomy Career Training, is pleased to announce the New Telemetry Technician Certification Course available for all health care professionals and students.

Earning a certification in telemetry and ECG will allow students to get jobs as telemetry technicians and enhance their credentials as a qualified health-care professional. Students can add extra earning power to their degrees with this one week course. Students are able to sit for the National Telemetry Association  Certification upon course completion. Students are requested to have completed an externship in ECG and should know how to apply leads.

Why wait? The same course goes for over $5000 to $10,000 dollars at local community colleges and technical health career schools. Phlebotomy Career Training is offering the course for $299.
The National Telemetry Association test fee is included. Nurses, LPN, LVN’s, Medical Technologist, Medical Assistants, Certified Nursing Assistants and the lay public who are interested in the medical field are all welcome to take the online telemetry .   Hospitals are looking for those who can multitask, so adding a telemetry certification will help solidify ones current position. Students can work most anywhere if they have the knowledge to interpret ECG’s and have a thorough understanding of the cardiovascular system. School should be affordable to everyone; at Phlebotomy Career Training students get quality education at an affordable price.

The Telemetry ECG Certification Course is similar in content to the course that Physicians and Registered Nurses must complete upon hiring into hospitals. The course helps students to read and interpret ECG Lead Tracings. Students will learn to interpret such rhythms as Atrial Fibrillation, Ventricular Tachycardia, Premature Ventricular and Atrial contractions, Type I, II and III heart blocks and many more. In addition students are trained in the mechanism of action regarding the biometabolism of heart medications such as beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, Calcium channel blockers as well as cardiac glycosides. The renin-angiotensen cascade will be studied in relation to how high blood pressure effects the cardiac muscles and the renal system. The EKG or ECG course will cover the entire anatomy and physiology of the heart muscle, and delve into the rhythmicity and excitability of cardiac tissue. Students learn to correlate the different heart medications to specific cardiac rhythms.

Professor Kimmel’s undergraduate work in biochemistry at the University of Michigan and toxicology at Kansas State have paved the way for the plethora of knowledge that Professor Kimmel can impart to students. Professor Kimmel’s PhD thesis detailed the toxicology of cardiac specific medications. Dr. Kimmel experience as an Registered Nurse includes working in the cardiac care unit, ICU, intermediate intensive care and medical surgical units.

Professor Kimmel States; “This is a very serious course. Students who consider taking this course should have some prior experience in the medical field and direct patient care skills. This course requires interpretation of actual cardiac rhythm strips. Although a telemetry technicians interpretation will be reviewed by a registered nurse and physician, technicians should be aware that immediate changes in the cardiac rhythm could be fatal. With that said, students should be ready to perform CPR. This is a course that is designed for those with experience in the health care field and that have some familiarity with cardiac leads and telemetry. Students should be prepared to purchase a caliper. These can be purchased at any uniform or medical supply store. For the ECG tracings, students should be able to print off the various strips to be interpreted. Students will need the calipers for their final exam.

The instructor of the course, Professor Nancy Kimmel is a Registered Nurse, ACLS Certified, a Certified Hazardous Materials Manager, Certified Phlebotomy Instructor, Certified Nurses Aide Trainer, PhD and a Basic Life Support Instructor through the American Heart Association. Professor Kimmel has worked in ICU, CCU, Intermediate Intensive care, Emergency, medical surgical floors and has done home-care. Professor Kimmel has been an ardent instructor in the Metro Detroit area since 2002. She has taught Mechanical Engineering at Lawrence Technological University, math, physics and engineering at Henry Ford Community College, Mechanical Engineering at Oakland University as well as authoring a best selling nursing entrance textbookwhich Wayne County Community College and Henry Ford Community College offer for sale in their book stores. Professor Kimmel holds a United States Patent on a revolutionary air filter and is currently working on helping the nation further their education with other affordable online courses, like the newly released Phlebotomy online course.

Phlebotomy Career Training is a licensed proprietary school in the state of Michigan.

Testimonial from a former online student;

Dear Nancy,
I would like to take a moment of your time to express my gratitude.  I am in the second week of the online telemetry tech course.  I am grateful for your patience in helping me get started and your directions in updating my search engines and internet access.
This online course will be an asset on my resume.  I am planning on applying for a position in the telemetry department at the hospital I am currently employed with.  The department was excited to hear about this course.
It enables me to still continue with my present work schedule and conduct my studies at my convenience.
Once again, thank you.
God Bless
Anna Knapp

Definition and Nature of the Work

Cardiac monitor technicians check the heart rhythm patterns of patients to detect abnormal pattern variations. They usually work in the intensive care or cardiac care units of hospitals. These technicians are responsible for reviewing patients’ records to determine normal heart rhythms. They monitor current patterns and note any deviations. To do this, technicians use instruments called calipers to measure the length and height of a patient’s heart rhythm pattern on graphic tape readouts. Cardiac monitor technicians observe the cardiac monitor screen and listen for an alarm to identify any abnormal heart rhythm variation. They notify nurses and doctors when medical attention is needed.

    I just came across your website – as I was browsing through to look for ECG/Phlebotomy courses.

    I got a CNA state license (Texas). I wonder if I could still enroll for the Telemetry Course online.
    Also, do we need to do some laboratory work at your school? (just for planning purposes)
    Or, do you endorse for ‘clinical hours’? (just wondering…

    Thanks ahead…

  31. admin says:

    Hi Noel;

    Thanks for writing in to us. Congratulations on your CNA license. You may take the Telemetry course from anywhere in the U.S. We have offering this course for the past 4 years and have successfully trained many students to successful careers in Telemetry. To answer your question, yes, you may take the course from Texas. Now with regard to clinicals. The telemetry course does not require any clinical externship, however, the EKG/ or ECG portion does require and externship. We do not assist actively with the externships for our online students. What we do is to provide the student with a letter of recommendation addressed to the hospital of their choice, letting them know that the student has successfully mastered the course material and is ready for a externship.
    Thanks for your time,

  32. padma says:

    I am considering taking the online EKG/Telemetry certification but I am concerned about the externship requirements. In the past, what has been your students success rates in getting these externship to complete their certification and how did they go about getting these externships?

    Thank you.

    Hello Kalyn;

    Thank you for your question. While it can be difficult to locate an externship on your own, we can assist you with a letter of course completion,once you have completed the course. Typically the best option is to prepare yourself. Purchase scrubs, we use navy blue. Get yourself a TB skin test and a background check and a lab coat. Next you are going to want to prepare a resume. We can help you with a resume of the course work that you have completed. We suggest that you contact you local physicians office and inquire if you may complete 40 hours of externship training. We will be happy to sign an agreement with the physicians office if necessary. You can be successful.
