We bring the classroom to you
The first step in the Skill Continuum Training program is CT Essentials. Simulators are delivered straight to your site, reducing travel expenses, time away from family and length of coverage needed for your engineering staff. With this convenient option, your staff will receive the benefits of 1:1 student to simulator ratio combined with live instruction greatly increasing knowledge retention.
"It's important to keep engineers well trained, it reflects in less down time which translates to better patient care. The cost of a non functional system is very high."

The power of simulator training
GE Healthcare has taken an innovative approach to training technology. We combine the immersive power of simulation, the user engagement of cutting-edge gaming techniques, and the precision of a highly detailed technical service manual - and put it all in a mobile training center that can be shipped and used around the world. The result is the powerful yet practical system.
"Going into the scanner lab, I felt I had already touched and worked on this scanner, and the virtual classroom presentation was solely responsible for that."

This technology creates an immersive training environment of lifelike realism. By virtue of advanced computer simulation, students feel as though they are working in an actual imaging suite and interacting with equipment that replicates a GE Healthcare scanner, literally down to the bolts and switches. Guided by an instructor, students perform a variety of training scenarios. Manipulating the touch-sensitive screen, the student can select tools, walk around the system, unscrew bolts, remove device panels, and disable electric switches. Once the skills are mastered, students are capable of performing the procedures on an actual system.
Value for clinical engineering departments
- Less disruption to daily operations
Service training is a necessary but disruptive event for an engineering department, since engineers typically need to travel off-site for courses that can last a week or longer. Simulator technology shortens training times by days and can be held at your facility, which helps reduce time away from work and minimizes the impact on departmental workflow.
Simulator technology is designed to be shipped to customer sites for on-site training. By not having to send staff off-site for training, clinical engineering departments can save on travel and lodging expenses
- More development opportunities
With the convenience of on-site training, clinical engineering departments can offer development opportunities for their staff. Cross training more engineers helps to ensure that critical imaging devices are well maintained and optimally available for patient care.
What you will need for on-site training:
- Room size of at least 850sq feet
- White board or large pad for notes
- Large screen TV with projection capabilities or a projector and a screen
- Lockable room to secure equipment
- 24 hour, five-day hold on room
- - Same room each day of class
- - No other parties scheduled in the same space
It's not business as usual.
