AHTM enjoys putting the focus on the needs of a student by considering the organization they may be or are working for; specialized modules/lessons can be quickly assembled to address the specific needs of the organization or student whereas instructional staff will find the necessary learning tools to enhance specialized learning. 



AHTM is committed to keeping the cost of training & education as low as possible. AHTM is also committed to using only the best training resources and newest technology in its courses and training.



AHTM instructional staff has years of experience working with “business to business” training, an understanding of focused concentration needed on specific medical equipment training allows our school to “customize” lessons for certain businesses that a traditional program may not address.



AHTM utilizes various Learning Management Systems (LMS), modern webinar software, Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) training portals, interactive lab software, online libraries, as well as proprietary and open source videos and training links to provide a balanced learning approach.



AHTM is a firm believer in “Trade Certifications” to advance student’s careers, and assists students with preparatory courses, e.g. Certified Biomedical Equipment Technician (CBET) and various Information Technology (IT) certifications.



Academy of Healthcare Technology Management is accredited by the International Council for Online Educational Standards (ICOES) as of July 2019.  AHTM is also approved and Regulated by the Texas Workforce Commission, Career Schools and Colleges, Austin Texas
