Many healthcare workers are considered essential, but few are as fundamentally important as Sterile Processing Technicians. Without them, hospitals would not be able to function. Patients would not receive necessary surgeries, many more people would lose their lives from preventable infection or untreated medical conditions. Their work impacts nearly every department within modern hospitals and surgical centers. Sterile Processing Technicians clean and sanitize used surgical instruments and other medical supplies so that they can be safely redistributed and reused on additional patients.
This short-term vocational program will prepare participants for extensive job opportunities in hospitals and surgical centers. If you are interested in entering this fulfilling career field, and making a critical difference in patients’ lives, contact us about this program.
