Training is a necessity in order to develop the technical diagnostic skills you’ll need to become a cardiac sonographer in Ohio. Cardiac sonographer training in Ohio can be achieved through attendance at a traditional brick-and-mortar school. These institutions usually require that an associate degree first be obtained (although some associate degree programs may have cardiac sonography training built into the program – check with your training program). Cardiac sonography training in Ohio usually takes about a year to 36 months to complete.

Courses you will take in a cardiac sonography training program will have titles such as: Clinical Sonography, Sonography Physics and Instrumentation, Vascular Sonography, Echocardiography, and Cultural Diversity in Health Care. Additionally, most training programs require an externship, in which you will work at nearby medical facilities (which in Ohio could include Akron City Hospital, The Cleveland Clinic and the many University Hospitals and Mercy Hospitals in the state). Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) must also be learned, as well as basic first aid techniques. Although Ohio has not mandated that its echocardiographers be nationally certified, it is highly recommended by both training institutions and potential employers. Having national certification indicates to potential employers that you meet the minimum qualifications and standards of the profession of cardiac sonographer. More information on credentialing is available through Cardiovascular Credentialing International or through the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography.
