Getting your continuing education credits in order can be quite the task, especially if you’re vying for better career opportunities or looking to diversify your resume in time for job hunting season. If long work hours have left you lagging on your continuing education credits, the NTA’s new telemetry certification might be just the thing you’ve been looking for. 

The NTA’s telemetry course provides time-flexible alternatives to conventional training and education, allowing new learners and practitioners to schedule their study sessions according to their needs. The course itself is completely online, though it includes a hard copy of the required course material. 

As a self-learning focused approach towards continuing education, potential candidates have 6 months to complete the comprehensive telemetry certification in cardiac arrhythmia interpretation. The course comes with added complementary attempts at the final exam. If students face difficulties with the curriculum or have other questions they’d like answered, they have access to live assistance from physicians and Family Nurse Practitioners (FNP-BCs).

The material covered within the course is meant to prepare you for the NTA exam; clearing the exam signifies the completion of the course and entitles you to 5.5 CEUs through the Commission on Accreditation of Pre-hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE). Other courses are also available for EMTs and EKG Techs, which are also worth 5.5 hours, along with an EKG focused exam. 

The NTA offers multiple exams that may be worth checking out for professionals who are looking to keep up to date with telemetry best practices, as well as for people who’ve been inactive in the field recently and need a way to jumpstart their career again. Whether you’re a registered nurse, LPN, or telemetry tech, the NTA has something to offer for you.

The final exam of the Telemetry course features 303 multiple-choice questions that must be completed over 180 minutes. Students must obtain a minimum of 85% on the test for it to be considered a successful attempt. All courses come bundled with at least one attempt at the relevant exam, and some even offer more than one. All exams may only be attempted up to three times within six months.
