Second Biomedical Equipment Training Course Completed
On Friday, November 12th, our second biomedical equipment training course, held in Liberia, was completed. We are pleased to announce that the students produced some excellent results.
Student results are split equally between 50% for practical work and 50% for their multiple-choice final exam. The achievements were:
- Two Distinctions
- Nine Merits
- Two Passes
Students should feel very proud of these results! Plus, eleven of the students were from Liberia and Mercy Ships invited two students from the Cure International Group to represent hospitals in Kenya and Zambia.
The training was conducted by our Managing Director, Sean Ryder, and Mr Hans Goldmann, who is working for us on a contract basis. Mercy Ships has invested heavily in tools and fluke test equipment to ensure the trained BioMed’s can now make large improvements in their hospitals. Thus, the outcomes for patient safety and health will also be improved.
Biomedical Technicians play a key role in the health and wellbeing of patients treated at their hospitals. Now that this training is completed, it is hoped that the Biomedical Technicians will become more valued as a part of the overall medical team.
