Registered echocardiographers agree that the most efficient solution to earning the RDCS or RCS credential lies in ESP’s adult echo program. You will enjoy the stimulating, interactive teaching style of David and Alicia as they precisely present the material in the ARDMS and CCI guidelines. Our students are well prepared for the challenging exam format and testing patterns found within the certification exams. Students preparing for CCI’s noninvasive echo exam should register for both the morning Ultrasound Physics – SPI and the afternoon Adult Echocardiography courses. These integrated lectures cover the entire CCI test outline.
