Advanced Ultrasound Systems (AUS)—a Tulsa, Okla.-based provider of ultrasound equipment, parts, service, and training—is offering a new five-day intensive training course focusing on ultrasound. The Diagnostic Ultrasound Service Camps (DUSC) are designed to equip HTM professionals with the skills necessary to maintain, troubleshoot, and repair ultrasound.

Students who complete the DUSC program, comprised of three established individual ultrasound classes, will have all the tools necessary to begin servicing ultrasound equipment, according to the company. The courses are worth one continuing education credit per hour of instruction toward recertification.

“AUS programs are highly interactive,” says Jim Rickner, service and training director for AUS. “Our students learn by doing vs. listening. Hands-on instruction with actual GE, Philips, and Siemens systems in the classroom is an essential component to every training course we offer. With no prerequisite required, any clinical engineer, biomed, or HTM professional can enter the DUSC program knowing little to nothing about ultrasound and leave with the confidence to work on at least two systems.”

All graduating students receive priority service on parts requests and continued telephone and video technical support from AUS.
