The NTBA encourages its members to join the growing number of certified biomedical professionals. Becoming certified has many advantages from salary increase and possible promotion to confidence in one's future and proven dedication to the profession. As incentive, NTBA awards a $50 gift certificate and pays the following years membership dues for those members who earn an ICC certification.
The Board of Examiners for Biomedical Equipment Technicians, operating under the direction of the United States Certification Commission (USCC) and the ICC, maintains the certification programs for biomedical equipment technicians (CBET), radiology equipment specialists (CRES), and laboratory equipment specialists (CLES). ICC Certification for the Biomedical Equipment Technician (BMET) is a formal recognition by the International Certification Commission for Clinical Engineering and Biomedical Technology (ICC) that individuals have demonstrated excellence in theoretical as well as practical knowledge of the principles of biomedical equipment technology.
One certification is not a prerequisite for another. Each certification CBET, CRES or CLES requires a separate, complete application and a separate examination. Applicants may test in only one discipline per examination.
