Sterile Processing

Get started in the health care industry as a sterile processing technician.

One way to get started in the medical industry is through becoming a sterile processing technician.

As a sterile processing technician, it will be your job to stock, sterilize and prepare tools and equipment that will be used during surgery.

You’ll be right in the thick of things and responsible for making sure everyone – doctors, nurses, patients, etc. – don’t face any contamination.

As a sterile processing technician, you’re also responsible for the cleanliness and safety of operating rooms, table and equipment.

Of course, that means you will spend most of your time in hospitals, clinics and doctors’ offices.

Does this sound like a path you want to take? Join the sterile processing program today!
