Conquest Imaging has issued a press release announcing the pre-approved Continuing Education Units (CEUs) by the AAMI Credentials Institute (ACI), for its 2018 training calendar.

“After seeing the recent growth (108 percent from previous year), I knew our quality training program was significantly impacting BMETs across the country,” explains Senior Director of Technical Services Jim Rickner. “Now that AAMI has approved our courses, we can easily offer a way for CBETs to keep up their credentialing requirements while providing a vetted, quality training option for any BMET.”

ACI Certification for the Biomedical Equipment Technical (BMET) certification is a formal recognition by the AAMI Credentials Institute that individuals have demonstrated excellence in theoretical as well as practical knowledge of the principles of biomedical equipment technology. Once certified, continuing education credits can be obtained to maintain certification, and keep biomedical technicians and engineers up to date on the latest technology.

The ACI award qualification process includes evaluation of all curriculums, course materials, syllabi and testing. ACI’s pre-approval program awarded Conquest Imaging’s training courses with Category IV CEUs as follows:

  • Ultrasound Bootcamp – 40 CEUs
  • Toshiba Aplio Series – 16 CEUs
  • Philips iU22/iE33 or Philips EPIQ 5/7 – 16 CE’s
  • GE Logiq E9/Vivid E9 or GE Voluson E8/E10 – 16 CEU’s
  • Siemens S2000/SC2000 – 16 CEUs
  • Ultrasound Basics or Multivendor Accreditation PM/DICOM – 8 CEUs

“Pre-approved CEUs are just one more way Conquest Imaging is simplifying enrollment in a quality training program to the health care industry. By continuously evaluating the curriculum, its delivery and its relevancy, Conquest Imaging is empowering the BMET to make a difference in their department’s bottom line by improving their technical skills and thereby lowering the total cost of ownership of their ultrasound systems,” according to the news release.
