Fluke Biomedical is pleased to offer its first Medical Device Quality Assurance Training Summit Sept. 16-20 at the North Seattle Community College (NSCC) Biomed Laboratory in Seattle, Wash. The five-day event is designed for entry-level biomeds / field service technicians and engineers, and will utilize a hands-on approach to understanding medical device risk management, and best practices for safety and performance testing.
"Our customers asked for more training, and the Training Summit is our way of answering that call," said Jerry Zion, Global Training Manager for Fluke Biomedical. "And to ensure we provide the most complete experience possible, we've partnered with the NSCC Biomed Technology program and Washington State Biomed Association (WSBA) to allow attendees to train in a biomed lab fully equipped with the latest technology, and receive one-on-one training with industry experts." During the Training Summit, industry experts will lecture on a variety of topics including the tenets and best practices of medical device quality assurance; risk management; sourcing new test requirements and standards; inspection procedures; and preventive testing methods. All lectures will be followed by quizzes and hands-on labs to ensure attendees leave with a solid, immediately applicable understanding of medical device testing best practices. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to network with experienced colleagues in the Northwest region through the WSBA.
Fluke Biomedical also plans to extend the Training Summit globally, planning subsequent events in Lima, Peru, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia later in 2013.
