Continuing education credits will be provided by San Marcos Healthcare Learning Center. Total CE hours depend on the actual time spent in class and time spent at home preparing and completing the requirements for the class (independent study). Maximum credit for independent study shall not exceed time allotted to a similar course that we offer to prepare for the certification class. Please refer to our ECG course
 
One on one appointments are available if you cannot make it to one of our posted schedules, and for experienced providers who have taken the class several times and want a quick renewal session.
