Originating in the heart of Southern California, CSS hosts two classroom courses located in Los Angeles and Riverside. Online courses are available for students that need a more flexible schedule.
Depending on the option you choose, it will take approximately 20 to 40 hours a week to complete course material over the five months you are with us.
Once you receive your course material, you will be working and studying to complete the requirements for your certification.
These requirements will consist of: completing your reading, homework and tests while coming into class one day a week. Each week a lecture will be held discussing two new chapters by the instructor. The time needed to keep up with this schedule will require that you dedicate a minimum of 25 hours each week to prepare for the exam.
You will also be required to volunteer at one of the partner hospitals and complete the 400-hour internship of hands-on training. This training will help you pass the national exam as well as have you ready to apply for a position as a Sterile Processing Technician.
Online students have the ability to choose their schedule. Once enrolled, students will have instant access to our enriching course. Textbooks will be shipped (textbooks included with tuition) by our team. The online course features a step-by-step guide simulating our classroom course. Students will still need to complete the mandatory 400-hour internship of hands-on training for the national exam.
Our school first started teaching the Medical Instrument Sterilization Course at the University of Phoenix. Today we are teaching classes at Orange Terrace Community Center in Riverside, CA and the Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles CA. Online course options are available to everyone.
