The Ultrasound Imaging Systems program provides formal advanced training at METC. The instructional design of this program’s courses is group lockstep.
This program is a consolidated program with three military services that is designed to provide training on: equipment theory of operation, clinical applications, related physiology, circuit analysis, troubleshooting, calibration, and safe operational procedures.
Methods of instruction include, but are not limited to: lecture, demonstration, online materials, simulations, laboratory practice, and practical exercises on ultrasound technology. Quality control and safety techniques are emphasized throughout the program.
Navy personnel attend this program as part of their initial Biomedical Equipment Technician training.
To obtain the 8410 Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC), this program functions as a required course within the Biomedical Equipment Technician training program (B-326-1000).
Navy students must successfully complete this program to fulfill passing requirements of the B-326-1000 program. For Army and Air Force, this program is separate from the METC Biomedical Equipment Technician program (MOS: 68A10 and AFSC: 4A231).
