and power subsystems.
With the 2017 training season just getting underway, Conquest Imaging has
announced the roll out of a new training class at their Stockton Training Facility.
GE Voluson E10 “We’re the first in the nation to include the E10 system with our 2017
class offering” Director of Training, Jim Rickner said. “Many of these systems are just
now coming off OEM warranty, and the OEM charges up to $1700 for a two-hour
webinar. This class is geared towards those who purchased the system a few years ago
and are looking to do in-house support for their out-of-warranty work. “We keep the
enrollment capped at twelve students, for a better hands-on training experience.”
Conquest Imaging has invested over $100k in their training program this year, with two
new high-end systems and an Electronic Whiteboard that simulcasts lessons onto the
tablet computers provided for the students to take home with them.
This class will be a two-day training event, and will include Basics, PMs, System Hardware
Theory and Repairs. It is good for up to 16 hours of continuing education credits through
the AAMI recertification program. View AAMIS’s recert program here.
