Operations running smoothly?
When it counts, medical equipment can’t fail. Calibrating, troubleshooting, testing, and repairing equipment used to diagnose, prevent and treat diseases and illnesses are responsibilities expected of Biomedical Equipment Technicians.
A booming medical industry presents
healthy opportunities for success.
You’ve no doubt noticed the correlation between advances in technology and advances in medicine. The increasing use of electronic medical devices and other sophisticated biomedical equipment has created a great demand for skilled and industry-qualified equipment technicians.
Whether you choose to pursue an Associate of Applied Science degree in Biomedical Equipment Technology or go for a Medical Imaging Specialization certificate that requires just 12 credit hours to complete, you can count on receiving extensive training. You’ll learn on state-of-the art medical equipment actually used in hospitals, clinics and many other businesses. A high percentage of graduates immediately find employment within the career field, where job stability can be a big plus. You may have to move within the state to find that perfect job match, but job stability is the norm in this field. Case in point: 52 percent of survey respondents in the trade magazine 24x7 report having been with their current employer for 16 or more years - an impressive figure in a world where the average person stays in a technical job for 13 months. The Medical Imaging Certificate is an advanced certificate that can only be taken after completing the Biomedical Equipment Technology Associates Degree.
