Annunciation Specialist Hospital (ASH)Technical School Emene, Enugu.
Annunciation Technical School is one of the training facilities in the Annunciation Specialist Hospital. This houses the joint programme of Annunciation Specialist Hospital and the Institute of Management and Technology (IMT) Enugu in Hospital Equipment Management, Maintenance and Repairs towards the establishment of a School of Bio-medical engineering for the award of a National Diploma Certificate.

Responsive image This programme which started as a Planned Preventive Management (PPM) in Hospital Equipent in the hospital attracted the attention of the Center for Disease Control, (CDC) Atlanta/DFAIT in 2011 to propose partnership with ASHE in the establishment of an AFRICAN CENTRE FOR LABORATORY EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE Project to be sited at Annunciation Specialist Hospital (ASH).

When CDC staged out of the partnership because ASH is a private body, the Hospital continued with its original plan to establish school of Bio-medical engineering for the award of a National Diploma. This is aimed at not just to equip graduates of the school with the required knowledge and skill, but also to empower them to compete at the labour market with approved certificates from an accredited academic institution. Annunciation thus continued discussions with the Institute of Management and Technology Enugu (IMT) to draw up an MOU for the establishment of the School. ASH/IMT has taken serious steps towards pursuing accreditation for the school by NBTE.

While this is in progress ASH in linkage with IMT decided to run a one year Certificate Course on Hospital Equipment Management (HEM) as a base for the school while pursuing accreditation of the school. This has been on for the past four years, while IMT Enugu arranges for NBTE Resource inspection of the programme as one of the programmes of IMT Enugu.

Alongside the one year certificate course, we run a three months intensive programme for any Hospital that expresses the need for their staff.
This includes a 6-weeks theory and a 6-weeks practical work, and a two weeks field work outside ASH.
