Biomedical Equipment Technology

The Biomedical Equipment Technology program prepares individuals to install, operate, troubleshoot, and repair sophisticated devices and instrumentation used in the health care delivery system.

At a Glance

  • Employment of medical equipment repairers is projected to grow 13 percent from 2022 to 2032, much faster than the average for all occupations.
  • About 7,300 openings for medical equipment repairers are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.

Emphasis is placed on preventive and safety inspections to ensure biomedical equipment meets local and national safety standards.

The coursework in the program provides a strong foundation in electronics, anatomy and physiology, networking, troubleshooting techniques, and a hands on learning experience. Some courses will include job experience and job shadowing, as well as people skills and communication, both in written and oral form.

Graduates should qualify for employment opportunities in hospitals, clinics, clinical laboratories, shared service organizations, and manufacturers’ field service. With an AAS degree and two years experience, individuals should be able to become a Certified Biomedical Equipment Technician (CBET).

Working Conditions

Attention to safety is essential, as the work sometimes involves dangerous machinery or toxic chemicals. Due to the individualized nature of the work, supervision is fairly minimal.

The DOL’s Occupational Outlook Handbook states, “Medical equipment repairers who work as contractors often have to travel—sometimes long distances—to perform needed repairs. Repairers often must work in a patient-caring environment, which has the potential to expose them to germs, diseases and other health risks. Although medical equipment repairers usually work during the day, they are sometimes expected to be on call, including evenings and weekends. Most medical equipment repairers work full time, but some repairers have variable schedules”.

Review the Labor Statistics Report for Medical Equipment Repairers from the Occupational Outlook Handbook (Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor website).
