Biomedical Equipment Technician AS degree - Can I do this faster and/or better?

I am planning on returning to school for a 2-year associates degree in biomedical equipment technology (AKA medical equipment repair). Does it have to take 2 years?

If I don't find something better, I will likely go to Gateway Community College in New Haven, CT; It seems like a good program, they're reasonably close to home, and they are just about to move to a brand new building with brand new equipment. The downsides are that it won't start until the Fall semester and, even though I already have a 4-year BA and won't have to take a bunch of non-core classes, it will still take two years because certain classes are only offered during certain semesters.
So, is there a faster and/or better way to do this? I want to get to the point where I am working in the field as soon as possible. Are there any companies that will get me trained while I work? Accelerated BMET programs somewhere? Or is Gateway as good a choice as any?
