Hi All

I'm Richard Fischer
I have been a licensed Electrician for 38 years working in the Central US wiring Hospitals and Assisted Living facilities.
I have an Associate degree in EE, and plan on moving that up to a Bachelors in Biomed.
I worked for PPG Biomedical as an Electronics Tech for 5 years calibrating and servicing patient monitoring equipment until they closed.
I also worked for Allied Signal Aerospace on and off under contract, or as an employee for several years, as an Avionics Tech for the General Aviation sector.
I've done enough traveling for work, and my wife and I want to settle down in one area now, so I am going for my CBET on my own in May 2010. I am using the Mometrix CBET Study Guide and Flashcards as a guide, then developing my own Full Color Flash Cards which I will share and ask you all to update.

I am looking for a CBET job near Lawrence, Ks

How do i put a file on here?

Hello,

I'm an active duty BMET with the USAF stationed at Ramstein AB Germany. I'm scheduled to take the CBET test this May. I'm also leaving the Air Force this June to return to Boise, Idaho or where ever a decent paying job will have me.

I enjoy working on sterilizers and X-ray.

When I'm not working on equipment I'm all about running, rock climbing, and playing guitar.


Hello jnewell, jjohnson, Daves, hurst54, jboulter, and Greg Bales.

Hello All, My name is Carlos. I have been working in the BMET field for 8 yrs. I have a BS in biological sciences. Im currently working as a BMET for the American Red Cross. I will be testing May 1, 2010. I sorry that Im late to find this forum and get involved but i look frwd to connecting and sharing info with you all. I have ordered the BMET secrets study material and flashcards off line and ive been studying since December for this major test. If it wasnt so late i would join the study groups and become premium member but test is 4wks away. I know my electronics backgroud is weak so im focusing on that alot. Ive worked as a BMET/ Lab tech most of my 8 yrs career out of college. I started as a Labtech in a hospital then found my way to the biomed field. The Redcross biomedical services divison deals with a relative small amount of biomed equipment compared to the hospital jobs but its challenging. alot of our work is now converting with IT so having a dual background in BMET/IT seems to be the way to go in my situation. GOODLUCK to you all and I maybe see someone in Memphis May 1st. Again GOODLUCK---

Hello All,

I am Tim Nagle, I am the production manager for CTI Productions. I have been working with CTI since mid-2007. My background is in electronics and I ended up in the video production field through technical engineering at post production facilities in Los Angeles and then in Dallas. Naturally, with an interest in technology and electronics, CTI was a great fit for my skill set. It gives me the ability to do what I love, video production while staying involved in cutting edge technology.

I hope you all enjoy the forum and thanks for all your contributions. We have some cool things coming down the pike so stay tuned.

Hi everybody, My name is Adam and I am a BMET in Tulsa, OK. I just recently graduated with a degree in Biomedical Electronics and am now working on dialysis equipment and reverse osmosis water treatment systems. I am hoping to take my certification exam in November. Just looking around to see if any of you on here have taken it yet and how it was. I currently have the AAMI practice exam on CD, but was wondering if there are any better study tools out there that you can recommend.

welcome aboard Adam, alot of people on this forum are in prep to take the exam in May this yr and some november as well. Once u read around you will find out that having more resources to study from will give you an better opportunity to pass the test. Go ahead and join as a preminum member so u can access all the videos and sample quesitons on this site. I just joined like 2 wks ago but the information is great and the networking is good as well. I also have flashcards that helps my study techniques as well.i have the mometrix study guide if you want it i can email that to you and also PM me i would like to see can i get a copy of the AAMI practice CD that you have. Im sure there is a way we can help each other.

PM me or email me at lilhunt25@hotmail.com-- TTLY

Welcome Adam! CTI is launching a 150 question practice test next Friday. This will be available on the e-Store at www.ctiproductions.com/store along with all of the other products. The test will be $25 for standard members but I believe there will be a newsletter coming out today with a special offer for the premium members.

On the non-CTI side, I know there are flash cards for purchase from a few vendors out there. A search should get you in the zone. Also, BMETWiki.org is a great source of information.

All the best,
Tim

My name is Jason Knight. I’m 28 years old and it’s taken me a while to find out what I want to be when I grow up. I’m currently living in Murfreesboro, TN which is just East of Nashville.

I joined the USAF after high school and went into working on F-16s. This was fun for a while but I knew it wasn’t where I wanted to be.

I got out of the military and moved to Tennessee to pursue music. I went to SAE Institute in Nashville for Audio Engineering. This was a dream job but I found out that I enjoy it more as a hobby than making a living doing it.

I’m currently in school at MedVance Institute for Biomedical Equipment Technology. I have one year left before I graduate and I’m really starting to dig in to prepare for my CBET certification. I’m doing a work study at the VA hospital in Murfreesboro, TN.

I’m really hoping to learn everything I can and contribute back to the world of biomed.

Thank you for letting me join.

Hello,

My name is Tanja and I am a BioMed Student. I am a returning older student. I worked in the field of electronics since I was 19. USAF Veteran of 10 years. Worked for Intel for about 6 years got tried of it, then worked and electrician apprentice for 3 years injured my back so decided to return to school because I was not able to work.

Always enjoyed technology and hands on electronics troubleshooting and repair. As an apprentice I worked at VAMC helping with the new MRI installation (electrical panels and pulling cables etc), I joyed it, so when the opportunity came I took it. Now studying towards to an AS in Biomedical Engineering Technology after will take candidate status for certification and find work.

Although I have just over a year to complete before graduation, I believe it can never be to early to start.

Thanks for your time
