Biomedical and Legal Metrology Department

Biomedical equipment technician/technologist (BMET) is front-line practitioners dedicated to the daily maintenance and repair of medical equipment in hospitals, meeting a specified minimum level of expertise.

Biomedical equipment technician training (BMETT) program have been established in 2006 GC at Addis Ababa Tegbare-id polytechnic college with collaboration with Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH). Addis Ababa Tegbare-id Polytechnic College (AATPTC) played a key role in founding the education of biomedical equipment technicians starting from scratch since there was no faculty for biomedical training in the country by developing a new curriculum, set upping the required facilities, acquire (collecting) equipment which are mandatory to start the program and coordinating trainers from the electronic department of AATPTC and inviting other scholars from other sectors.

Vision
