Our accelerated Online Sterile Processing Technician Certification is designed to prepare students to become a vital member of any hospital central services team. Medical facilities of all shapes and sizes seek sterile processing technicians with skill sets that include: approved practices for decontamination and sterilization of medical supplies and equipment, the proper ways to transport equipment, identifying common pathogens found in the medical setting, and more. Sterile processing job skills are essential to the sterilizations, maintenance, storage, and distribution of medical instruments. Gaining this skill set, can enable a sterile processing technician to command higher wages from employers.
Central Sterilization Solutions online program prepares aspiring technicians for certification with industry leading insight that cover subjects like medical terminology, aseptic technique, blood borne pathogens, patient privacy, quality assurance, professional development, and more. The program can be completed at the students desired schedule and upon graduation, students will be prepped for the national exam.
Our Program has been developed by highly recognized technicians, managers and educators within the central service field. We have built our course to provide all of our students a fast and comprehensive experience.
This online course is designed to be taken on your own time. There is no deadlines or a minimum timeframe. We do recommend that you take your time with the online video, textbook, and workbook. From our years of experience, we recommend a steady pace of two chapters a week. This process has proven well for us and our students in classes, but it’s designed to be advanced at your own pace.
You will also be required to volunteer at one of the partner hospitals and complete the 400-hour internship hands-on training. This will help you pass the national exam as well as have you ready to apply for a position as a Sterile Processing Technician.
