Sterile Processing Technology/Technician. 511012


The Sterile Processing Technician (SPT) program is recommended for those who want work in a hospital environment, or other medical facility where surgical procedures are performed.
The program is designed for those that are new to the field, or for experienced SPTs looking to differentiate themselves in the job market through formal education and certification.
Because every hospital or surgical center the U.S. has a need for this role, there are ample opportunities in most geographic areas.
Many hospitals and surgical centers prefer to hire certified sterile processing techs, and some employers pay higher salary/rates to those who are certified. Sterile Processing Technicians (SPTs) prepare surgical instruments and devices. They clean, inspect, test, sterilize, store and deliver devices needed for surgery in a healthcare facility. Because of this important work, surgeons can operate safely on patients in our communities. Upon completion of this program, the student will be eligible to sit for the provisional certification exam for Certified Registered Central Service Technician (CRCST) sponsored by the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Materiel Management (IAHCSMM).
Full certification is obtained after acquiring 400 hours of hands-on sterile processing experience within six months of provisional certification.
