The British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) is Canada’s leading polytechnic institute providing educational credentials in a wide range of applied health professions. Currently, BCIT offers a certificate and diploma in Non-invasive Cardiology and a post diploma in Invasive Cardiology within the Cardiac Sciences Department. The delivery of their Cardiology Technology program is in a distance education format. This affords students the opportunity to attain training in cardiology who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend a full-time day school program.
This program will expose the student to a range of cardiac patients and a variety of the biomedical equipment found within a hospital or laboratory environment.
The program at BCIT offers the opportunity to gain a certificate or diploma upon completion and prepares the student for the CSCT National Certification Examination.
