Yes, the didactic ("class") portion of the program is online. Our students have access to our student web portal that houses all of our lectures and assignment links. Each week's new content is dripped into this portal on Sundays, and our students can work on the assignments throughout the week at their leisure, anytime prior to the 11:55pm deadline that Friday.
Students can complete support tickets for quick questions, and they also have the option to schedule 1:1 Virtual Office Hours with our instructors as well anytime they have some deeper questions to discuss.
For our EKG Program, we have one required one-day lab intensive scheduled in Week 12 of the program, onsite at our Carmel, IN location.
Absolutely! You don't have to reside in Indiana to attend either of the programs, however you will need to ensure you can be on-site for the lab intensives as described above.
All EKG techs are required to pass a national certification exam to become a Certified EKG Technician (CET). We recommend students pursue this certification through the National Healthcareer Association (NHA). To sit for the certification exam, a student must have
a high school diploma or equivalent and documented proof of the performance of ten EKG tests through a training program like Cardinal tech.

While we do not accept financial aid, we are proud to work with our students within our payment plan structure. Some students choose to seek private financing as well through their bank or other financial institution. Please keep in mind as you're looking at tuition solutions that these are not student loans but private personal loans.
If you're heading to your bank to discuss securing a loan, utilize our bank letter HERE to ensure your banker understands the program details.
Since our courses are provided in an online format, many of our instructors work remotely, and we currently have restrictions on visitors to class. Those instructors on site are there to facilitate lab intensives with our students to provide a hands-on educational experience.
