Become a Registered
Cardiovascular Specialist

Cardiac Credentialing International (CCI) is the testing organization which tests and awards registry to personnel actively working in hospital cardiology departments. Upon passing these examinations you will be awarded the title Registered Cardiovascular Invasive Specialist and may wear the initials "RCIS" after your name (Previously called RCVT). Depending on your employer, this may raise their salary or qualify them for a higher level position with increased responsibilities. Please call CCI about everything dealing with the registry process at 1(800) 326-0268 or visit their web site.
