Are you a hands-on kind of person with a technical mind? If so, San Jacinto College’s biomedical equipment technology program might be the path for you. Biomedical clinical equipment technicians are essential to the medical field. Technicians must have the skills necessary to repair and replace, test and calibrate, and perform preventative maintenance on sophisticated medical equipment. They must also facilitate training sessions on medical equipment such as patient monitors, defibrillators, medical imaging equipment, and more.
The San Jacinto College biomedical clinical equipment technician program:
- Provides quality training in computer and electronics technology in today’s medical equipment operation and repair;
- Offers an occupational certificate that will start to build a foundation for developing an understanding in medical equipment and computer and electronics operation and repair; and
