|Level||Curriculum/Skills||Time Requirement||Optional Training in Device Implantation|
|1||Cardiac arrhythmia and electrophysiology core||2 months (in addition to Task Force 2 training requirements)||No|
|2||Advanced noninvasive arrhythmia management||6 months||Yes: In addition to 6 months of noninvasive emphasis, another 6 months for a total of 12 months is required for pacemaker implantation training|
|3||Clinical invasive cardiac electrophysiology (meets the American Board of Internal Medicine CCEP Examination requirements)||1–2 years (12–24 months)||Yes: A total of 1 year beyond the 3-year cardiology training program is required. If surgical aspects of CIED implantation are desired, a total of 12 months will need to be devoted to this discipline.|
CCEP = Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology; CIED = cardiac implantable electrical device.
