The beginning of a successful surgery begins with clean and sterile surgical instruments. As a Sterile Processing Technician you will be an essential team member of the operating room and healthcare team. You will be responsible for the cleanliness, decontamination, inspecting and assembly of surgical instruments, packaging and sterilization of all surgical instruments. As you pay close attention to details regarding instruments you will have to be an effective verbal and written communicator with the OR staff to make procedures a success. Sterile Processing Technicians have a strong understanding of decontamination and infection control to ensure their work protects patients and healthcare members from infections and diseases.
After completing this course, students will be prepared to take the Certified Registered Central Service Technician (CRCST) certification exam offered by the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Material Management (IAHCSMM). This program is based on the IAHCSMM certification, CRCST.
