Optimum Biomedical’s Training Programs

June 2021

Well, it’s been a very busy time here at Optimum Biomedical! 

Following the deployment in Eswatini, we have had lots of requests for our training programs. As COVID restrictions tentatively ease across the globe, we have once more returned to Africa with Mercy Ships, who have decided to continue running our biomedical equipment training course in Liberia.

Sadly, the ship cannot be with us, but we are still able to run the course with the logistical support of the Mercy Ships in-country team. So, our Managing Director is teaching our full course from June through to the end of August.

A class of thirteen talented biomedical students will learn new skills and work with new test equipment and tools that remain with them after the training. This is key to their ongoing ability to maintain and repair lifesaving equipment.

Meanwhile, Rob Shutt, has been on deployment through UK-Med working in Djibouti, alongside the World Health Organisation as part of the COVID-19 response team. Rob has been helping organise oxygen supply systems and generation plants to help the country treat COVID-19 patients.

With all these new projects, our workload has risen further, with plans to hold a training course in Senegal in early 2022, as well as courses in Eswatini, Benin and Kenya. So, watch this space!
