Training Courses/ Programs

This program prepares the student to work in the sterile processing department (also known as the central supply or central processing distribution department) of a hospital or medical facility. Sterile processing technicians (also known as medical Equipment preparers or instrument technicians) provide support to patient care services within a healthcare facility. Responsibilities include cleaning, decontaminating, inspecting, assembling, packaging, sterilizing, storing and distributing medical devices needed to provide patient care, especially for patients undergoing surgical procedures.

Employment opportunities exist in healthcare facilities such as hospitals, surgical centers and birth centers. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the need for sterile processing technicians will increase by approximately 14.5% between now and 2024.

The program includes theory, lab, and experiential learning components. Students receive supervised clinical experience at several cooperating area healthcare facilities.

Graduates qualify to apply to the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Materiel Management (IAHCSMM) for eligibility to sit for the Certified Registered Central Service Technician (CRCST) examination.
