About Certification

The AAMI Credentials Institute (ACI) awards certification credentials to healthcare technology professionals and entities in higher education, industry, and healthcare delivery.

As healthcare becomes more complex, certification is an assurance of competencies. It strengthens the public confidence in safer healthcare systems built by quality  providers.

  • Certified Biomedical Equipment Technicians (CBET)
  • Certified Laboratory Equipment Specialists (CLES)
  • Certified Radiology Equipment Specialists (CRES)
  • Certified Healthcare Technology Manager (CHTM)
