Tenacore is partnering with the College of Biomedical Equipment Technology to help train tomorrow’s healthcare equipment technicians.

“We’re very excited to work with CBET on building the future of medical equipment service training,” said Brandon Anaya, Tenacore’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

“Combining Tenacore’s expertise in depot-based service and repair of medical equipment with CBET’s leading-edge training development will be a game changer for the medical equipment service and repair industry,” he said.

Tenacore is using its expertise in healthcare technology devices to help CBET develop augmented reality (AR) and virtually reality (VR) training. The initial focus will be on infusion pumps and oxygen blenders — two areas that set Tenacore apart from its competition.

As part of the partnership, leaders from the San Antonio, TX-based college recently visited Tenacore’s new facility in Costa Mesa, CA, for a strategy session. The two teams plan to unveil a pilot of their project at the AAMI Exchange in San Antonio on June 3-6.

CBET offers a Biomedical Equipment Technician (BMET) certification course, which provides a comprehensive overview of the biomedical equipment and healthcare technology management industry.

Students study hardware and software of medical devices and acquire skills in basic electronics, schematics, pneumatics, hydraulics and customer service.
