Appleton, Wis.-based Technical Prospects has unveiled its in-person training curriculum, which launches in 2021. Specifically, the company has implemented COVID-19 safeguards for its in-person courses and will also offer virtual courses.
A variety of courses will be accessible in CT, MRI, fluoroscopy, radiography, and angio/cath lab fields, with the most notable of these course offerings being:
- Siemens Ysio/Ysio Max
- Artis Zee/dFC/FA
- Luminos Agile/Agile Max
The company is also offering a five-day MRI course on Siemens Magnetom Avanto and Espree designed to advance the knowledge, capabilities, and careers of field service and technical support personnel. With extensive safety precautions being taken, the company is following CDC guidelines to ensure a safe environment for all in-person participants, Technical Prospects officials say.
These safety measures include small class sizes, social distancing, personal protective equipment (PPE), enhanced cleaning and sanitation, individual meals for attendees, and rules limiting the amount of employees within the building at any given time. In addition, all courses have been ACI-certified by AAMI, at 45 CEUs each.
Technical Prospects also announces its new instructor for 2021 course programming, Sam Darweesh. Before obtaining his master’s degree, Darweesh earned his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and is equipped with 20-plus years of experience as a CT and MRI senior engineer and subject matter expert.
“We are looking forward to our training program in 2021,” says Jeremy Probst, president and CEO for Technical Prospects. “This year has proven to be a challenge for the educational field due to the pandemic, but with the new curriculum and the addition of Mr. Darweesh, I am thrilled to see Technical Prospects continue to be an educational trailblazer in the medical imaging community.”
With advanced expertise in the field, Darweesh has provided skilled recommendations to engineers in North and South America and has led major strategic projects on CT and MRI systems across the globe. Darweesh is also an adjunct professor of medical imaging, in addition to his collaborations with worldwide major independent service organizations.
