Looking for a program that will give you the training necessary to enter the workforce of an in-demand field? Biomedical Equipment Technicians (BMETs) are health care professionals who test, maintain and repair medical equipment. As a BMET, you could work for a hospital, medical device manufacturer, or third-party hospital vendor, fixing and testing a wide range of medical devices and clinical applications. The program starts with the Biomedical Equipment Technology I Proficiency Certificate, and those who complete this certificate can continue their education with the Biomedical Equipment Technology II Proficiency Certificate.

Upon receiving your proficiency certificate, you may enter the workforce, or your courses may be applied to the Applied Science and Engineering Technology associate degree program, and then transfer to a four-year college.

Featured Career

From the Field: Women in BMET

Adriana Gibson, Biomedical Equipment Technician at St. Joseph Mercy

"While being a stay home mom, I decided to get a college degree. With my background in electronics, Biomedical Equipment Technology seemed a good fit. Within few months after graduation with an associate degree, I got my first job as a Biomedical Equipment Technician. Working in this field is never a boring job. The verity of equipment is almost overwhelming. I love the continual education part of it. Every time I work on a new piece of equipment, I learn more about the technologies available to improve patient care."

 

Jennifer Collins, Director of Clinical Engineering at Mercy Health

"Everything about this field is exciting! I get to play with tools and the latest technology. I get to fix equipment that can have a huge impact on patients. It's an amazing feeling when I fix something and the Doctor/Nurse/Tech gets their diagnostic equipment back so they can get the patient on their healing journey. As a leader, I get to help guide the team in doing their very best, every day."
