For training, we offer an online Learning Management System, DVD courses, online testing and a CBET study forum. We can also brand current videos for your company, or even produce an entirely new course specific to the needs of your employees.


Equipment Specific Training

OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) often offer training on the various devices that they manufacturer. Advantages of this type of training are that manufacturer certification may be more accepted than other training programs and that manufacturer training will often accompany service passwords or access to service tools. Disadvantages to OEM training are higher costs and the fact that manufacturers typically only train on their own equipment.

Third Party Training is training that comes from non-manufacturer related vendors or Independent Service Providers (ISO). Some advantages of third party training are that these training programs usually provide training for multiple manufacturers and often at lower costs than that of the OEM training programs. Disadvantages include occasional access to service tools/troubleshooting software and possible lower recognition of certification from these programs.

Military Training

DoD Biomedical Technician Training
The Department of Defense (DoD) has a mission to graduate highly qualified, competent and professional Biomedical Equipment Maintenance Technicians through innovative tri-service consolidated training to meet DoD health care needs world-wide.
