What you'll learn in this medical training:

The Sterile Processing Technician certificate program provides students with the knowledge and skills required to work as an entry-level sterile processing technician (also known as a surgical processing technician or central service technician). The primary responsibility of a sterile processing tech is to ensure that a clean and sterile healthcare environment is maintained at all times. This is primarily achieved through the process of decontaminating and sterilizing all surgical instrumentation and equipment.

Students enrolled in this program will learn various sterilization techniques, including the proper method for decontaminating and sterilizing surgical instruments and equipment. They will also gain a solid understanding of microbiology and infection control. Other topics covered in this program include surgical terminology, human anatomy, surgical instrumentation, sterile processing, and safety & risk management. Students will also learn about federal and state guidelines, including HIPAA.

Employment for Sterile Processing Technicians

Sterile processing techs are employed in the Sterile Processing, Central Supply, and Sterile Supply Departments of hospitals. Employment opportunities can also be found in surgical centers, outpatient clinics, and physicians' offices. Some employment possibilities include sterile processing technician, central supply technician, and central service manager. 

The course will cover the following subjects:

  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Microbiology
  • Infection Control
  • Decontamination
  • Chemical Disinfection
  • Patient Care Equipment
  • Preparation and Packaging
  • Surgical Instruments
  • Sterilization

  • Inventory Control and Distribution

Don't be overwhelmed by the subjects mentioned above, I do my very best to make it fun and easy to learn. I offer a tour of a Sterile Processing Department in the state of Connecticut.
