Training program opens another door to a medical imaging service career

Technical Prospects, a leader in the medical imaging industry, has announced the launch of its BioMed to Imaging Academy as a new addition to its existing imaging service training programs: Integrated Training and Custom/Corporate Training.

January 25, 2022 — Technical Prospects, a leader in the medical imaging industry, has announced the launch of its BioMed to Imaging Academy as a new addition to its existing imaging service training programs: Integrated Training and Custom/Corporate Training. Development of the curriculum comes in response to industry demand for training specifically focused on biomedical technicians (biomeds) who are ready to take the next step into servicing medical imaging equipment.

“In light of the ongoing shortage of qualified imaging engineers and the ever-evolving needs of the medical imaging industry, we knew we needed to develop a program that provides more than what traditional training can offer,” said Sam Darweesh, chairman of engineering and vice president of operations at Technical Prospects.

Unique in its mentor-led approach, this two-year instructional program is designed to build confidence in novice engineers through one-on-one, dedicated training from industry-leading experts. Ongoing guidance is also provided by mentors who are carefully paired with students based on their specific learning needs and personality profiles, ensuring optimal retention of the subject matter and improved on-the-job performance. More importantly, for the next year, students gain readily available support and access to instructors and staff who bring decades of combined experience to the program, having worked on some of the most advanced imaging systems in the world.

In order to better accommodate the needs of aspiring imaging engineers from around the country, the BioMed to Imaging Academy combines the flexibility of online virtual classroom instruction—through Technical Prospects’ exclusive Interactive Virtual Training Academy (IVTA)—with the confidence-building benefits of in-person training on state-of-the-art equipment at their Appleton, Wisconsin facility. Additional workshops and on-the-job training are scheduled throughout the coming year to round out the curriculum.

“This training program offers advantages in flexibility, confidence, and certainty for students and healthcare providers alike, in that they can be assured they will get the most from the training and be able to service and maintain their medical imaging systems properly,” said Darweesh. 

As with all of Technical Prospects’ well-known, robust training programs, the BioMed to Imaging Academy courses were developed to meet the rigorous guidelines of the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI), which include proper instructor licensing and training, maintaining high quality presentation skills, upholding an appropriate class format, utilizing a tailored approach and customer focus, and much more.
