A-dec’s two year certification permits an A-dec certified technician to maintain A-dec medical devices in line with CQC outcome 11, and is the only official route to access genuine A-dec spare parts.
Mark Fields is an A-dec certified engineer. .
Why does A-dec insist on A-dec certified engineers?
An A-dec certified technician has been invited to attend a series of in-depth training courses at A dec’s head office in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. This industry-leading, certification course demonstrates A dec’s commitment to dentistry by ensuring all A dec certified engineers are trained to a high level, to competently work on your medical device, as per the manufacturer’s guidelines.
During this course, they undertook a series of practical hands-on tests including fault finding, installation and servicing, along with a number of theory-based elements. The purpose of this course is to ensure all technicians who successfully complete the exam are officially certified to install, repair, maintain and service all A-dec equipment.
"A dec's Certified Technician course is our commitment to dentistry. We wanted to form a national standard that A dec end users would understand, recognise and be reassured to know that any maintenance, repair or installation would be carried out in line with A dec factory standards.
As part of this certification, the dental team can also be safe in the knowledge that any replacement or service parts used will be genuine A dec spare parts."
Dave Robinson, A-dec UK’s Head of Technical Training.
