The most efficient solution for RDCS and RCS.
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.
Students preparing for CCI’s Registered Cardiac Sonographer (RCS) 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.
