Course Code - 017

ADULT ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY is a comprehensive two-part course designed for:

  • students preparing to write the Adult Echocardiography Registry Credentialing Examination and the Non-invasive Echocardiography Registry Examination, and

  • practising adult echocardiographers who wish to review current adult echocardiographic ultrasound while earning 30 educational credits or units. Registered echocardiographers may take the courses in any order.

This two-part course covers ALL ASPECTS OF THE ADULT ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY Registry Examination Content Outline and will PREPARE YOU FOR BOTH THE THEORETICAL AND VIDEO PORTIONS OF THE REGISTRY CREDENTIALING EXAMINATION AND THE NON-INVASIVE ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY REGISTRY EXAMINATION.

PART 1 includes a selection of video cases of normal and abnormal adult echocardiographic examinations.

Each module is completed by answering questions which may be mailed or faxed to the instructor or completed online. Descriptive answers are provided by the instructor.

Students may take an OPTIONAL closed book examination at the end of the course. This allows students to assess their level of knowledge and to target any area of study which may require more attention prior to the RCE.
