A Big Hello from me
I was interested in gaining Engineering Technician Membership (EngTech).
I have read the information on your website which was very useful but I am still unsure about a few things.
A bit of information about my background is that I graduated (2013) from Leeds Metropolitan with a 1st class degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering (degree is not accredited) and also have a BTEC National Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Chesterfield College.
I have been working for a small company for over 6 months as a Medical Service Engineer and I mainly deal with the repair and calibration of medical equipment.
Will it be hard for me to gain EngTech and what route will I have to go down????
In the Future I will be applying for a Job with the NHS as a Clinical Engineer or Technologist ..helping repair and calibrating their equipment...
.I would like to know if any one is in a role similar to this with the NHS and if they can provide me with direction in what I can do to help me reach that goal....
I also want to keep improving my knowledge and practical skills in the role of electronics in medical devices .....I can not afford to do a Masters in Biomedical Engineering and further my studies so would like to know if there are any practical and informative short courses or CPD courses I can do
So far I plan to do the Level 3 in PAT Testing and also a few IPC course to help improve my soldering skills....
I am a very practical person and enjoy repairing and building electronics
Any help would be very welcome
Thank You for your time
