First Biomedical Equipment Training Course Completed

October 2021

As the world starts to open up for global travel again, Optimum Biomedical has been very fortunate in continuing to work with their business partners, Mercy Ships, Cure International, UK-Med, the UK Government, NHS and Diamedica.

Our Managing Director, Sean Ryder, has completed the first biomedical equipment training course in Liberia. Eleven students from Liberia, one student from Malawi (Cure International), and one student from Cameroon (Mercy Ships) participated.

The course was a great success! The Biomedical Training Facility, within the grounds of the Ministry of Health compound, is beginning to play a major role in the ongoing training of biomedical technicians from all over Liberia.

This facility also handles repairs that are not able to be completed on-site at the hospitals. This is the first time we have seen a dedicated biomedical training facility turning into a centre of excellence.

Sean came back to the UK for a very short period, before returning to Liberia again where he is carrying out a second course for eleven more students from Liberia, and two more students from Zambia and Kenya (Cure International).

As our calendars are rapidly filling, we have decided to use the services of Hans Goldmann from Germany (living in Liberia), to help run the second course in Liberia. This will allow Sean to return to the UK to manage other project needs.

Sean will be returning to Liberia in November for the final stages of the second course. Following this, he will then meet our Translator, Kenedy Chia, in Senegal for an advanced anaesthesia equipment course, and finally return to the UK in December.

Our Biomedical Engineer, Rob Shutt, has also been very busy serving our NHS Clients and UK Government contracts within the UK. Next, he’ll be flying out at the beginning of October to carry out a four-week biomedical equipment training course, in Eswatini (old Swaziland), through UK-Med and the World Health Organisation.

Optimum Biomedical are ecstatic to be awarded further contracts with UK-Med, Bedoc and the UK Government, which are keeping us busy – to the point where we will be placing an advert for an Apprentice to work on our UK projects, and eventually, join our projects overseas.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the right individual. Details of this post will be provided on our website and across our social media platforms in the coming weeks. Check it out!

For now, that’s it, but stay tuned for updates on our global projects
