Following the completion of biomedical equipment training in Tennessee, BMETs may seek certification offered by the International Certification Commission for Clinical Engineering and Biomedical Technology (ICC).  The test for certification is administered by the Board of Examiners for Biomedical Equipment Technicians.

The certification test covers a range of subject matter in which professionals in the field should be proficient.  This includes anatomy and physiology; public safety; electricity and electronics; medical equipment function; and medical equipment problem-solving.  The exam is multiple choice and only those who score 105 out of the 150 questions will pass. 

The kinds of practitioners certified by the ICC are biomedical equipment technicians, radiology equipment specialists and laboratory equipment specialists.

Certification must be renewed triennially, i.e., every three years.  To be recertified, BMETs must have earned no fewer than 15 hours of continuing education credit through opportunities such as conferences, seminars and professional meetings.
