About Clinical Engineering Technicians and Biomedical Equipment Technicians

Clinical Engineering Technicians, also known as Biomedical Equipment Technicians, are professionals who manage and maintain medical technology such as ventilators, electrocardiograms, and X-Ray machines in healthcare. They provide not only corrective, but also preventative maintenance and are key to patient care in places of medical practice. Some benefits of working in this field include its accessibility and salary. Certified Biomedical Equipment Technicians (CBETs) are in high demand and do not require a college degree. The final goal for this project for SpringBoard Incubators is to create and develop a diverse and an inclusive talent pipeline in partnership with Suffolk County Department of Labor in order to reduce the existing skill gap and increase employment needed in this field.

Our goal is to build a diverse talent pipeline for these positions.  Our mission as an organization is to help bring more women and minority candidates opportunities to work towards attractive paying positions. Education and opportunity are the major ingredients that can elevate poverty in struggling communities. You cannot be successful without both of these ingredients. We are delighted to have a partner like Suffolk County Department of Labor that shares our mission and vision for Diversity Equity & Inclusion.
