Conquest Imaging is investing upwards of $100,000 in its Stockton, Calif., training facility. According company officials, these investments will include current technological tools that address how healthcare professionals learn and will enable participants to better incorporate their learnings into their existing digital assets.
The third-party ultrasound provider’s training program enhancements include:
- A new, interactive touch panel whiteboard
- Tablets/smartphones that allow students to interact with presentations
- A new, dedicated printer that produces high-quality manuals and supplements
- New equipment, such as the GE Voluson E10 and Toshiba Aplio 500 ultrasound systems
- Updated manuals with videos when viewed electronically
“Our philosophy is that when we train people how to service and maintain their ultrasound equipment, we are furthering our entire industry through better and more reliable performance, and improved access to services for patients,” says Jim Rickner, global training director for Conquest Imaging. “This is why investing in training facility improvements is one of our top priorities and will continue to be so.”
Conquest’s programs are highly interactive, which helps students learn by doing, instead of listening. Each participant receives a digital tablet with the course curriculum so that they can interact with the course material and instructor in ways that are actionable and fully customized to their needs. Further, hands-on instruction with actual Toshiba, GE, Philips, and Siemens systems in the classroom is an essential component to every training course offered.
