Conquest Imaging Global Training Director Jim Rickner is a highly sought after training expert.
Conquest Imaging has announced the successful opening of its 2017 training season.
The training registrar reports 15 percent of Conquest’s training seats were sold prior to the opening of the school year, prompting an additional ultrasound Boot Camp to be added to the calendar to accommodate the high demand.
“We can be confident classes will fill up quickly, especially with the addition of the E10 and Aplio 500 class this year,” Global Training Director Jim Rickner said.
The addition of GE Voluson E10 and Toshiba Aplio 500 classes were part of the $100,000 technology investment announced earlier this year.
During opening day festivities, students and employees enjoyed using a new electronic white board and sampling new technology. Yesterday’s class was the first group to use tablet computers to interact with the presentation being simulcast on the whiteboard. Students obtain digital manuals, support videos and training presentations to take home with them on the tablets they receive at the start of each class.
“I enjoyed the class very much. The information was in depth but not overwhelming. Jim made sure we understood each topic before proceeding,” Anthony Passalacqua, Supervisor, Sodexo CTM, stated.
Students value Conquest Imaging’s training program as it covers system aspects more clearly and thoroughly than the classes they take with the OEM – as stated in multiple 2016 course evaluations.
“The ‘real-world’ approach to training from a biomed’s perspective is what makes the difference,” Rickner indicated.
These ultrasound training programs are highly interactive, which helps students learn by “doing” versus “listening.” Hands-on instruction with actual Toshiba, GE, Philips and Siemens systems in the classroom is an essential component to every training course offered.
Conquest offers scholarships to Active Duty Military, Veterans, the VA and California Medical Instrumentation Association (CMIA) members.
