Biomedical Electronics Technology, Certificate of Specialization
This program provides students with skills necessary to enter the field of Biomedical Electronics service and support as Biomedical Electronics Technicians (BMET). Students will learn human anatomy, electrical and electronic concepts associated with medical electronics and devices, basic science behind instruments, and troubleshooting techniques.
This program also serves as exam preparation for Certification for the Biomedical Equipment Technician (BMET) of the International Certification Commission for Clinical Engineering and Biomedical Technology (ICC).
An individual who has been convicted of a felony may not be qualified for employment as a BMET in healthcare.
Students with an electronic education and an Associate degree or equivalent training or a B.S. degree, may take EE 133 Electrical/Electronic Refresher in place of taking the series of EE 130, EE 131, and EE 132.
