Besides its holistic approach to the overall care and safety of medical equipment and systems, the MCC’s BTS program has several other unique features:
- It is the only public program of its type in Kentucky with only around 74 programs nationwide.
- It is highly accessible with its online delivery and one-day-a-week lab sessions.
- It has 6 embedded certificates in the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree option that give graduates added employability status.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics provided by the US Department of Labor, the job outlook for the occupation of “medical equipment repairer” is projected to grow 30% from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Greater demand for healthcare services and the use of increasingly complex medical equipment will drive employment growth. Those who have an associate’s degree in biomedical equipment technology or engineering would have the best job opportunities.
