You found the two beds independent schools in the business. One is a spin off of instructors from the other. They both have entry level classes for individuals with electronics backgrounds and follow on courses on manufacturer, model specificequipment.It's the old catch 22. If you spend the money out of your savings on the schools there is the question of no experience.A couple of ideas for you depending on your ownsituation. Try getting a position as a Bio-Medical Equipment Technician in one of your local hospitals. Then, get them to pay for the trainingafter you have been there for awhile. Western Wisconsion Technical Institute, Texas Technical,and Johnson Technical in PA are all decent Bio-Biomedical Schools (2 years) if you want formal training in that area.Or, look around for an indpendent distributor that service the Physician Office/Clinic market.The schools would prepare you for that type of equipment. The high end X Ray, CT, MRI, marketis difficult to break into. Much of the troubleshooting and installation of these units now involves connecting them to networks likePicture Archhival Systems and Electronic MedicalRecords. Therefore, many of the new techniciansbeing hired by the major manufacturers have networking vs medical equipment backgrounds.
