Cardiovascular Technologists

Tips for Entry

Cardiovascular technologists must listen to patients and take case histories, so take high school and postsecondary courses that require oral communication and writing.

In your postsecondary studies, focus on courses that will prepare you to be certified, since many employers require certification as a condition for employment.

Volunteer or find a part-time job at a hospital or health care facility.

Take math and science courses to familiarize yourself with computational skills and basic scientific concepts and vocabulary.
