Sterile Processing Technician

The SP‐3000 Sterile Processing Technician program prepares students to gain industry certification and ultimately to work in hospitals, surgery centers, clinics, and other healthcare facilities. A typical hospital uses (and reuses) tens of thousands of medical instruments every month. Although some supplies are disposable, many are not. The reusable supplies come with their own special instructions for proper cleaning and maintenance.
