CBET certification is recognized as a demonstration of competence for BMETs working in the HTM field. Certification through the AAMI Certification Institute (ACI) is approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
The Technical Services Partnership at the University of Vermont (UVM) will again be offering the CBET Examination Review Course nationally starting in February . The course is set to begin Thursday, February 16 with one-hour webinar review sessions each week for 11 weeks. The topics mirror those in the ACI CBET Certification Candidate Handbook. Material is provided weekly in advance for review with the final session being an all-day class held both live and online interactively.
