A biomedical equipment technician (BMET) is a part of the healthcare delivery mechanism. Their job responsibilities include the maintenance of patient care equipment such as ECG monitors, ventilators, infusion pumps, telemetry systems, etc. BMETs are required to be aware of the medical safety standards that apply to medical devices. With experience, BMETs can move on to product evaluations, co-ordinate contracts, and purchase recommendations once they have gained sufficient experience doing preventive maintenance and corrective maintenance work. A two year associate’s degree in biomedical equipment technology is the minimum educational qualification required for an entry in this field. BMETs can find employment with hospitals, equipment manufacturers, and third-party service organizations.
