May 21, 2015 — Fluke Biomedical launched Advantage Training, an online center aimed at providing accessible training to the biomedical engineering community.

The Advantage Training Center features curriculum that covers the full spectrum of medical device preventive maintenance and quality assurance for biomedical and diagnostic imaging equipment. Training is available for all skills levels, and course topics range from introduction to basic terminology to advanced technical applications.

The curriculum was developed by subject matter experts, including faculty from the Biomedical Engineering School at the University of Vermont.

“Having access to little or no product training is a real issue our customers face around the world,” Jerry Zion, global training manager for Fluke Biomedical explained. “Inadequate training poses a serious risk to patient safety. Developing a common understanding of medical device risk management is crucial to improving the quality of global health."

The courses follow an e-learning format and allow users to control their own learning experience, with unlimited free access anywhere and on any device. Certificates of completion are issued upon passing a quiz at the end of a course to support continuing education efforts.

Fluke Biomedical has plans to expand Advantage Training in the future to answer growing training demands.
