AAMI is offering students enrolled in nonprofit biomedical equipment technician (BMET) programs who have been displaced by closures due to COVID-19 free access to its CBET eLearning Study Course.  

“We hope that this eLearning course will provide these students with a way to continue their BMET studies while classrooms are closed and to prepare for the Certified Biomedical Equipment Technician (CBET) exam, should they wish to take it when they are eligible,” says MJ McLaughlin, director of education programming at AAMI. “The CBET eLearning Study Course is a powerful tool that allows learners to navigate the key content areas that successful BMETs should understand using an interactive, self-paced experience.” 

Users can master each of the six core topic areas with a combination of lessons and practice quizzes. While scrolling through the lessons, learners will be presented with several opportunities to “Check Your Understanding.” These pop-up features allow the learner to interact with the content by flipping flash cards, matching terms, answering multiple choice questions, and exploring schematics/diagrams.   

The online study course will be made available to students through their training program’s faculty. AAMI will provide interested faculty members with unique access codes for their institutions. (E-mail [email protected] for more information.)

The course modules begin with a knowledge assessment of 10–15 questions and ends with a practice exam of 30 questions. This feature gives the learner an idea of how much time and effort they may need to allocate to each module. The AAMI eLearning CBET Study Guide is available at the AAMI Store.  

The application deadline for ACI exam registration has been moved to June 1, 2020, and the testing window has been extended to May 1–June 30.
