The Medical Room's vocational training programme is the only competency-based, practical training available in Australia for Biomedical Technicians and Engineers and has been developed and designed to provide the fundamentals of the maintenance and repair of medical devices. 

The Medical Room's training programme was developed in the United Kingdom, in partnership with Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. It is a modular programme with both theoretical and practical learning and is specifically designed to provide candidates with the competencies they require for the effective support of medical devices found in hospital or clinical environments. Trainees learn:

  • How to work safely in the clinical and technical environments 

  • How medical equipment is used safely in the clinical environment 

  • Physiology as required to understand the medical equipment and its function 

  • How to maintain, test and repair medical equipment, including hands-on practical sessions with the relevant medical devices and test equipment.

The training programme has been tailored to meet the Australian requirements and competencies. The modules may either be completed separately to fill in knowledge or skills gaps for established Biomedical Technicians or Engineers or taken together to achieve a qualification.

Candidates successfully completing Modules 0 and 4 subsequent modules will be awarded the: 

Certificate of Medical Equipment Technologies

which is a recognised UK Award accredited by the Open College Network. In Australia, accreditation to Advanced Diploma level is underway.
