Stockton, Calif.-based Conquest Imaging announced that the AAMI Credentials Institute (ACI) has pre-approved its continuing education units (CEUs) for their 2018 training calendar.

“Now that AAMI has approved our courses, we can easily offer a way for CBETs to keep up their credentialing requirements while providing a vetted, quality training option for any BMET,” says Jim Rickner, Conquest Imaging’s senior director of technical services.

ACI Certification for the Biomedical Equipment Technical (BMET) is a formal recognition by the AAMI Credentials Institute that individuals have demonstrated excellence in theoretical, as well as practical, knowledge of the principles of biomedical equipment technology. Once certified, continuing education credits can be obtained to maintain certification and keep biomedical technicians and engineers up to date on the latest technology.

The ACI award qualification process includes evaluation of all curriculum, course materials, syllabi, and testing. ACI’s pre-approval program awarded Conquest Imaging’s training courses with Category IV CEUs as follows:

  • Ultrasound Bootcamp: 40 CEUs
  • Toshiba Aplio Series: 16 CEUs
  • Philips iU22/iE33 or Philips EPIQ 5/7: 16 CEUs
  • GE Logiq E9/Vivid E9 or GE Voluson E8/E10: 16 CEUs
