Cardiac care technicians are eligible to work in hospitals set up as cardiac sonographers, vascular technologists after adequate training in the specialized field. Employment opportunities for cardiac care technicians are expected to fluctuate from high to low throughout the next decade. There is an expected expansion of 20% – 35% in job opportunities over the next ten years. This is partly due to the rapidly aging baby-boon generation that will require more open-heart surgeries as they get older.
There is also added emphasis on cardiac health due to the fact that heart related illnesses are responsible for a large number of death each year. There will also be job opening due to current cardiovascular professionals retiring or leaving the field for other other reasons. Because the profession is relatively small and competitive, job security should be high for these cardiac professionals.
