Very educative and knowledge gain is highly appreciative.
Time for training module should be extended.
I have gained great insight and knowledge in equipment management and maintenance, especially regarding inventory management.
I have received the necessary training on managing healthcare equipment. My technical and managerial scope has been broadened through the various courses in the module and I will make sure to apply these new set of skills in my daily activities as the Equipment manager of my facility.
Very interesting and eye opening. Learnt a lot of new things especially in contract management, workshop management, inventory and stock management and designing an effective PPM calendar.
I would recommend this for all Biomedical engineers in the clinical setting most especially for those yet to enter this area, so they know how to go about the maintenance and management of hospital equipment very well.
Thank very much you for this opportunity.
A comprehensive course on hospital equipment management spanning equipment maintenance right to administrative stuff like procurement, contract management, and training. The course is interspersed with interactive quizzes and exercises that engage the trainee. Great work done by facilitators and course creators.
Enrolling in this course has given me more insight into how healthcare Equipment is managed. the experience was tough but great and I will make sure to put whatever I learnt into Practice. I am really excited to be part of this program.
I think this a very good training program and I highly recommend that every HTM is taking through this thoroughly. I have learnt a lot during this training which I am sure are going to help me in a long way. Of all the Modules, Inventory Management was of particular interest to me and knowledge from this module is going to help me improve massively in my annual report writing.
