    About this class

    The OEC Medical Systems, Inc training Program is designed to provide the hospital Biomedical or Clinical Engineer with the knowledge and skills necessary to properly maintain the OEC equipment. 

    You'll receive world-class instruction from a team of experienced Technical Trainers who have spent years working with our devices. All our courses include in-depth theory with ample hands-on lab and system troubleshooting time. The course will provide all necessary Planned Maintenance (PM) activities, applicable hardware and software adjustments and system alignments. Each topic is supported with in-depth labs designed to reinforce the theory covered. Your knowledge and skills are reinforced and evaluated with troubleshooting events, daily interactive discussion, and comprehensive exams.

    We explain our environmental health and safety rules and all students are expected to adhere to all safety procedures while attending this and any course held at GE OEC in Salt Lake City. We provide Lead Aprons for use in the lab area and safety glasses and steel toe covers if needed, but it is recommended that the student provide their own safety glasses and shoes.
