Contrast Injector Service Training – Course Syllabus and Outline

Course Syllabus

Instructor: Steve Maull
Course Title: Contrast Injector Service Training
Course Length: 1-5 days (1 day per injector)
Course Cost: $1,300 per injector
Course Hours: 8:00am – 4:30pm

Course Manual: The Contrast Injector Service Training Manuals, created by Maull Biomedical Training in conjunction with Florida Service Plus, will be provided.

Course Description: The Contrast Injector Service Training Course will teach the service technician the proper operation of contrast injectors, identify the injector components, proper PM and calibrations/calibration verification procedures as well as the tools and test equipment needed. Each student will be trained on, and have the opportunity to perform, a PM and calibration/calibration verification on the following injector systems (student’s choice):

  • Mark 7 Arterion®
  • Mark V Plus®
  • ProVis®
  • Stellant®
  • Spectris Solaris®
  • Envision
  • Angiomat Illumena™
  • CT 9000™ ADV
  • OptiVantage™

Course Organization: Classes are Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM with a one hour lunch (provided by Maull Biomedical Training). This is a lecture-lab course; the first part of the first day of class will be lecture, the rest of the training will be hands on labs. During the lab days, the students will have the opportunity to work on the models listed above. The students will be broken up into groups of 2 or 3 to perform operational and maintenance labs on the injectors.

Course Objectives: By the end of this course of study, the medical service technician will:

  1. Understand the purpose of contrast media.
  2. Know how to properly perform an operational inspection.
  3. Know how to properly perform preventive maintenance.
  4. Know how to properly perform a calibration/calibration verification.
  5. Be familiar with common problems and general troubleshooting procedures.

Testing, Attendance and Completion of the Course: Upon completion of the Contrast Injector Service Training Course the student will be issued a Certificate of Training, indicating they have completed the training course. There are no tests or quizzes during on-site training. However, to successfully complete the course, the student must attend all training sessions and successfully complete all the hands-on labs with his/her lab partners. Situations may arise, such as illness, injury or emergency, which causes a student to not complete the requirements of the course. When this occurs, all efforts will be made by Maull Biomedical Training to give the student the opportunity to return for training, at no additional registration fee, to complete the training that was missed. Only then will a Certificate of Training be issued.
