Travel Echo Tech Qualifications

Becoming an echo tech requires you to continue your education after high school. Attending various classes and programs is necessary to gain all the vital knowledge needed to operate medical equipment properly and distinguish any abnormalities that may appear in the images. To be an echo tech, you must:

  • Earn an associate or bachelor's degree in cardiovascular technology

  • Pass a medical sonography program accredited by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) to obtain certification

  • Complete continued learning units to maintain your certification

You may also need to get a license to work because some states require echo techs to have one before they can practice there.

Traveling Echo Tech Duties and Responsibilities

As a travel echo tech, you perform and have similar duties and responsibilities regardless of the facility you're working at. Each location may have different protocols or policies, but standard tasks you'll do during your job include:

  • Reviewing patients' medical history and records

  • Educating patients and their families about the procedure

  • Preparing equipment and patients for imaging

  • Performing the imaging tests and echocardiograms

  • Analyzing the results and preparing a summary for the doctor

If you have the experience, you may also help the physicians you're working with complete more complex ultrasounds. Obtaining additional certificates to further your professional education may increase your chances of having more duties when working at different facilities, as well.
