Graduate Certificate in Electrocardiograph (ECG) Interpretation has been designed to provide  a high level of knowledge and skills in ECG interpretation and critical rhythm recognition. The course is essential learning for health care professionals working in areas where ECG interpretation is required as part of a patient’s routine and emergency care.

Course outline

The self-directed Graduate Certificate in ECG Interpretation provides direct access to post graduate studies to a broad and diverse range of potential students regardless of their geographic location.

The course takes students on a journey through understanding components of the ECG waveform, recognising and interpreting cardiac rhythms and interpreting a 12 lead ECG in a way that helps ensure you get the most out of the program. Throughout your study, our program manager will provide support and feedback on your work to also ensure that you completely understand the specific areas being studied.

Learning outcomes

The outcome for students is to gain the skills and knowledge to accurately interpret an ECG in every day practice and how to take appropriate action. The course is designed to enhance the student’s professional scope of practice and broaden their current workplace practice.

On completion of this learning package, students should have the required skills and knowledge to:

  • Accurately perform and record an ECG tracing
  • Interpret components of the ECG waveform
  • Recognise and interpret cardiac rhythm
  • Interpret a 12 lead ECG
  • Identify and assess acute coronary syndrome
  • Identify and assess bundle branch blocks.
Delivery

Online learning and assessment for the Graduate Certificate in ECG Interpretation is delivered via BenchmarqueIQ. There is a final assessment activity that includes randomised case scenario and a broad range of sample ECG graphs for interpretation via video conferencing.

Assessment

To achieve competency in this course, students must competently complete an assessment covering essential knowledge and skills. There will be a final assessment activity that includes randomised case scenario and a broad range of sample ECG graphs for interpretation via video conferencing.

Expectations

As this is a distance-based course, a computer and internet access is essential.

Online learning will involve:

  • self-paced theoretical study
  • self-paced practice interpretation activities
  • self-directed research relevant to specific areas of ECG Interpretation.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is Continuing Professional Development (CPD)?

Continuing professional development is the means by which members of the clinical profession maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge, expertise and competence, and develop the personal and professional qualities required throughout their professional lives.

The CPD cycle involves reviewing practice, identifying learning needs, planning and participating in relevant learning activities, and reflecting on the value of those activities.

How many CPD hours will I achieve for completing this Program?

As a general guide, one hour of active learning equates to one hour of CPD. It is the responsibility of the individual student to calculate how many hours of active learning have been completed. The hours of active learning estimated above should act as a guide to CPD hours.

For all other health professionals completing this program, your continuing professional development (CPD) requirements may vary and it is important to remember that it is your responsibility to maintain and register CPD with your professional body. In many instances, your regulatory authority will recognise hours of learning as stated above.

How long do I have to complete the assessment?

18 Months. The time is calculated from when a student is provided with online access to their assessment. Within the BenchmarqueIQ platform, students will be provided an initial 12 months to complete and submit all required assessment activities. Friendly email reminders will be sent to students to ensure an assessment is completed on time. At the completion of the 12 month period, students can request up to a maximum of 2 extensions, each extension being for a period of 90 days. If requesting a second extension, the request must be in writing.

If the entire 18 month period expires and a final assessment has not been submitted, The Benchmarque Group reserves the right to deem the assessment Not Competent and remove the student from the program.

What if I cannot complete the assessment in the allocated time?

If the entire 18 month period expires and a final assessment has not been submitted, The Benchmarque Group reserves the right to deem the assessment Not Competent and remove the student from the program.

How many times can I submit my assessment?

If you are deemed Not Yet Competent on your first and second assessment submissions, feedback will be provided. It is very important that you read all the feedback provided. The Assessor will have identified any areas where additional evidence is required or any questions that need to be reviewed and resubmitted. If, after 3 unsuccessful submissions, you are unable to demonstrate competency on your assessment, your assessment will be deemed Not Competent. Feedback will be provided to you and what the possible following steps and outcomes are.

What do I receive at the completion of the program?

At the completion of the program, successful students will receive a Graduate Certificate in ECG Interpretation. 

Who will benefit from doing the course?

Anyone working in an environment where ECG 's are taken and/or patients are monitored. Nurses working in cardiac wards with monitored patients, coronary care unit (CCU), intensive care unit (ICU), emergency nurses, practice nurses and ambulance officers.
