Readers Respond: Experiences in 4A2X1 - BIOMEDICAL EQUIPMENT

Responses: 6


Do you have experience in this Air Force enlisted AFSC?

Biomed Tech.

Army trained, not AF, at Fitzsimons AMC, '65, '68, AA degree Colo Elec Tech College, now Colo Tech U. AAMI certified. Was instructor at the school '70-'73. Worked the field 'til Army retirement 1982 then Civil Service , GS-11 until 2005. My opinion.....the most rewarding career field, direct civilian equivalent positions. Army Med Dept says "Conserving the Fighting Strength". Loved my work. My only regret - I wasted my first 7 years in Air Defense 'cause I didn't know about the school 'til my assignment at Thule AB, Greenland . Go for it !

Tech School

Tech School, as I understand it, is no longer held at Sheppard AFB. Tech school is now being held at Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio Texas. Roughly 30 Minutes from Lackland AFB. It is an Army Base, Funded by the Air Force, ran by the Navy, and Utilized by all Branches of Military including Marines and Coast Guard.

An excellent occupation both in the service and after returning to civilian status. Get your AA while in the service. Get certified as a BMET. This is a lifetime career with great growth potential anywhere in the world.
