Cardiovascular Technologists

Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

Cardiovascular technologists have experience either from on-the-job training, course work at a two-year college, or both. Some also must be certified in order to work for certain employers. They must possess several skill sets in order to be successful. These include attention to detail in order to follow a physician's instructions; interpersonal skills in order to work with patients who may be under mental stress, in physical pain, or both; physical stamina in order to stand for long periods and move and lift heavy patients; and technical skills so they can operate complex machinery.
