Rehan Ahmed, Business Parter with Afif Bridges for Trade (Biomedical Sales & Service)
“When I came across this program I was very optimistic about it, and in the end of it I can comfortably say that CIT has exceeded my expectations. This program has helped me enrich my technical knowledge in Biomedical Technology. With the help of the Instructor & Staff, I was able to increase my technical knowledge to new limits. I am planning to enroll my younger brother soon as well. I hope many students can take benefit of this program, so that they can easily integrate into the Biomedical field.” -Rehan (2016 CIT Graduate)
David Taylor, Biomedical Equipment Technician with CER Technology, Inc.
“I was able to come down to Lake way Regional to do my hands on training with Mr. Pisano. It was a great experience full of learning. I learned essential skills such as ordering parts, doing diagnostic test, and every day relations between vendors and hospital staff. A lot of learning in two days. I also couldn’t ask for a better host. Thanks to Mr. Pisano and CIT for making this experience happen, I was able to be hired right after graduation with CER in Victoria, Texas. Anything I can I do to help others in the program, I’m here to help!” -David (2015 CIT Graduate)
Shane Lafferty, 2014 CIT Graduate
Biomedical Equipment Technician II with CER Technology, Inc.
“I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your help. You were instrumental in getting me all of the information I needed to get this approved through the Workforce TAA grant program and also getting me what I needed personally to show me this was the program I needed. I really appreciate all of your help, time, and effort in this. Without CIT, I wouldn’t be in the position I am today. Biomed is a career I set my sights on back when I graduated high school in 1998. I have tried over and over again to get into this field with absolutely no success, until now. CIT helped in getting me the education I need and put me in contact with the correct people to finally land me a position as a Biomedical Equipment Technician. I couldn’t possibly be more grateful, appreciative, and happy with where I am today. If you ever need anything from me, feel free to reach out. I’d be happy to have students come in here to help with training and show them how a Biomed department runs. Keep in touch.” -Shane
Macpherson Osuji Jr, 2014 CIT Graduate Biomedical Tech I with United Regional Healthcare System
“My employment is going well since graduation. I received my promotion to a BMET 1 position in August of 2014! The BMET program was a great add-on to my Associates degree in Electronics. I work on risk 3 and 4 equipment and still handle beds and the Hill-rom, G.E telligence, and Dukane nurse call systems. As a BMET, I work closely with the nursing staff and doctors to ensure proper use of patient care equipment to prevent malfunction during procedures that may lead to harm to both the patient and staff. This is achieved thru a preventative maintenance schedule in which we test and calibrate each equipment according to the original equipment manufacturers specification. In addition i track numerous equipment as well as Work Orders using an asset management database. My employer is United Regional Health care system.” -Macpherson
