Overview

Trained central service and sterile processing technicians help reduce the risk of microbial exposure by maintaining and sterilizing equipment for a wide range of medical areas. This short training program can help students learn heat, steam, and chemical disinfecting and sterilization techniques as well as inventory management skills. Professionalism, teamwork, communications and medical language are stressed as students learn to pursue or maintain job opportunities in sterile processing technology.

Upon completion of the program, and once 400 hours of work on the job are completed, students will be eligible to take the IAACSMM national certification exam.
