EKG Technician Training - You can do it!

February 24, 2020

Have you ever heard of EKG testing? While it might sound like an advanced medical skill, you can actually learn everything needed to become a successful EKG technician in less than 1 month! 


EKG technician's make around $21 - $27 per hour by monitoring cardiovascular health with specific equipment.  This is important for hospitals, doctor's offices and a variety of specialty clinics (which all have jobs available).

Astar's EKG Technician program will teach you everything you need to know in one simple training program that only takes 80 hours to complete.   From medical terms to equipment, you will learn all the skills you need to jump right into a job in this field. 


The great part about this program is that you do not need any experience in the medical field and you don't need a college education. As long as you have a high school diploma or passed the GED exam, you can start our program anytime! 

Astar classes are offered the following dates and times:

Career Fair at Patriot High School

January 01, 2020

Astar sends big thanks to Patriot High School, located in Nokesville, VA, for allowing us to participate in their annual career fair.  It was great to talk with local students who are thinking about what they want to study after graduation.  There was such a great turn out of students interested in the nursing field and Astar was able to offer them many different opportunities to get a head start on their college credits through the Nursing Assistant and EKG Technician programs. 

How do you go about getting college credit through Astar courses, you might ask?  Depending on the school, students who study in university or college level programs for nursing, EMT, LPN or other medical programs are able to skip basic courses if they have a CNA certification and/or work experience.  Astar offers discounted prices compared to these university programs so students will save time and money by taking this path and completing Astar's certification programs before starting their university coursework.
