WATERLOO, Iowa – The Durable Medical Equipment Repair and Training (DMERT) Group has been launched as a new certification body for the DME and complex rehab technology industry. The DMERT Group is a nonprofit organization meant to establish training guidelines and provide proper certification for repair technicians. U.S. Rehab, VGM Education and FIOS Repair Training collaborated to develop online tech training courses that are DMERT Group certified. The courses are designed to help prepare techs to take the DME RT challenge exams to earn certification. The group is guided by an executive oversight board that includes Greg Packer, president of U.S. Rehab, and Matthew Macpherson, ATP, director of FIOS DME Repair Training. “We’re excited to announce the addition of the DMERT Group as a resource to ensure quality standards which will further strengthen the credibility of repair technicians - who are intelligent, focused and repair-minded individuals,” Packer said. “This organization has a firm foundation and is advancing the certification for repair technicians that work in the DME and CRT arena.”
