Course Description

BMETs play a vital role in patient care through the inspection, maintenance and repair of measuring, recording and monitoring devices. MiraCosta’s Biomedical Equipment Technology Program Certificate will train students to troubleshoot, repair, and maintain electronics-based biomedical instruments and equipment. The program is being developed as a result of increasing demand for biomedical equipment technicians (BMETs) in the San Diego County region. Courses will build on lecture topics through extensive hands-on application in the areas of:

"The academic content and length of this program is reasonable due to the extremely varied background experiences of each BMET student. Some students have zero experience in some/several of the subjects taught here, while others like myself have not been in school for years. The way this course was set up did a wonderful job of dusting off academic cobwebs and getting us reasonably up-to-speed, on the same page, and provided a foundation for our own continuing educational endeavors moving forward."
