I have been considering a career change and have been researching this program. It is offered at Mohawk College as 2 year program in Hamilton.

Do you like your job...pros/cons

I was wondering how difficult is the program? (I have a 9 & 11 year old)-Is the program doable as a 41-year-old...ha! ha!

How is the job market in this field?

What is the going rate per hour?

Thanks so much for any input you have.

Bella, there are no jobs!!!!, and please do not work for KMH

I just graduated from the program. There ARE jobs, but do NOT do something with Everest. The two-year diploma is the way to go. You CAN get jobs, but you will be casual or part-time for a year or two, and will likely have to work in burlington, mississauga, etc.

I'm going for Diagnostic cardiac sonography afterwards, anyhow.

Hi Meredith,

My wife has been looking for close to 6 months now with no success. There were a few offers, but you have so many candidates looking today that it's very difficult to get through. She tried everything, calling, visiting in person, email.... she's still looking today... If you have advices or suggestions, I'm open.

Thanks! :)

I have recently graduated from the Cardiology Technologist program in May at Everest college and is one the few fortunate ones to actually have found a fulltime job. I stress FORTUNATE ones!! A few of my classmates did land part time jobs, but the majority of them are still job searching. The school's recommendations are to try searching out of province postings. I did get a few responses from the out of province hospitals. I got retrained through the Ontario's Second Career program so I didn't have to paid for the 23k tuition; feel bad for those who have to borrow to fund the training. Everest is going through a crisis of their own regarding accredations with CSCT, mainly because they have been flooding the market with too many grads.
The bottom line is regardless if you are a cardio or an echo tech, your chances of landing a job is very low.

Do not go to Everest, they are a bunch of scam artists. To start, Mohawk is cardiovascular tech as compared to cardiology tech. You get proper and qualified teachers there. The school's motivation is to educate the students where everest's is strictly ensure that you paid the tuition on time. In regards to second career, I am not sure if there is any funding left over from to pay for any one of the two schools. Good luck with you venture, I will be moving to Calgary soon to start my job at the soon to open hospital.

Hey, Thanks for providing helpful info. I got good grades in high school with average 95%, and im hoping to get into mohawk. I considered everest only because of second career but i think i will consider mohawk now. How was your experience in everest? How did u find a job? what are you doing right now? How much is ur wage(if possible sharing,its ok if you dont want to share)? I apologies for asking too many question, I'm just excited lol thanks once again

I guess my experience at everest was ok because I didn't have to pay for anything and the length of program was nine months which is more suitable for me and in toronto. Job finding is constant web search for posting and apply to everything and hope for the opportunity to be interview. My pay was $17 then $18.50 after six months at a private clinic with no benefit or anything which is why I applied to hospitals out west where their wages start at $26+.

Hey, Thanks again, If i get accepted for second career funding for everest? Would you suggest me to go to everest. OR still to mohawk? Reason is... its 2 years in mohawk and 9 months in everest. I really want to finish asap plus if i dont have to pay. I want your advice in this case.

No! Everest used to be a 9month program but now is 15months costing in excess of $35k. With Mohawk you can take advantage of the back door entry to the echo program if you choose to go that route because it is a cardiovascular diploma. With everest, you will have no chance of getting to the echo program unless you have some sort of science degree.

My wife went back to school with Everest almost 4 years ago and started the cardiology technologist program. At the time, it was only a 10 months evening program, that cost us over $22K. She got graduated a year later and only found a job over a year and a half after she got graduated. As another user stated, Everest literally flooded the market with new grad's when the market was already saturated. At one point, they actually couldn't provide the actual CSCT certification anymore because of that; CSCT basically said no more certification until the market needs it. Not sure if this is still the case today.

My wife was offered several low-ball far-away part-time positions ($17/hour and less) to finally find a 30-hour position downtown toronto for a private cardiology office (we live in Brampton) about 1 year and a half ago. While I'm glad we're among the lucky ones, I would warn anyone getting in this program today. There are still lots of people looking and very few openings. Also, Everest was overall a negative experience. Poor (customer) service, not really helping finding a job and basically just a money grab. Not sure about Mohawk seems to have a better reputation out there.

I hope this helps...

I went to Everest/CDI for Cardiology Tech program in Toronto and the school sucked but my teacher was great (i was lucky consider having no healthcare backround). I just focused on getting the best education i could and started lookin for my own placement 4 months before graduation since i was told when i graduate i may have to wait for a placement to come up.

I would like to know that all that is expected of us as cardiac techs and the upgrading we must do ................. why do doctors look down on us and pay such cheap wages here in ontario ? Echo tech's make 10+/hr more

Like many others here, I am a mom over 40 with 3 kids - quit my full time job a few years ago to stay home and drive school bus - now that kids are getting older and school bus drivers DON'T receive any extra benefits, I am thinking of looking into a differnet carreer - was thinking of ultrasound tech as I actualy went to a school and was paid to have students preform ultrasound on me when I was preggers with our 3rd child and thought it seemed interesting - BUT I was also thinking of a carreer as a prison guard - my old job used to have me inside the women's jail in Milton once a week preforming a service and that job seemed like something I might be interested in. Suggesstions? I know I keep hearing that the market is flooded, but it seems like I saw alot of younger people last night when I actually had to go for an ultrasound.

Mathias in Bellevue, Washington said: My wife was graduated form Everest almost a year ago, got her CSCT certification in past September, and she's is still looking for a job as of today. There is litterally no position open right now in Ontario + the cardio tech jobs are filled by nurses most of the time because the CSCT certf is NOT mandatory to do this job in Ontario.... something that Everest didn't tell us that's for sure.

I'd suggest you do something else.

Its a great course and a great job. I have been in the field myself for 8 yrs. There are no jobs because they pump too many students out of the schools. Nurses do not do what cardiac techs do! Although some clinics will have the PNR's do the work all hospitals have dedicated cardiac tech to do the cardiac tech work.
Find something else the job market suck and when a job becomes open it is filled my someone with experience or else you will get paid really poorly

Seriously though, does anyone know of any industry that is actually HIRING right now? I am getting extremely frustrated! I am more then willing to go back to school and get the proper training, I just want to know there is going to be work (preferably well paid) once I graduate!

Yes nursing!
