Sterile Processing Technician
Cornerstone has exceeded my expectations. The SPT course was so much more than just going through the motions. Lab time was structured in such a way to give me time to think. The class was structured to fit my learning style which is "learn by example". I would recommend this institution to anyone. LOOK NO FURTHER!

The sterile processing and distribution technician decontaminates, inspects, assembles, and sterilizes instruments and surgical trays. The technician also manages inventory control, orders supplies, inspects, maintains, delivers and retrieves equipment and instruments for the surgery suite, emergency room and intensive care units.
This program prepares graduates for eligibility for the international board examination given by CBSPD (Certification Board for Sterile Processing & Distribution) or IPASS (International Professional Association of Sterile Services) both based in the US.
Sterile Processing Technician Program includes such topics as:
· Anatomy & Physiology

The course training is very comprehensive, which includes the theory component and skills lab, so that an individual will succeed in the international board certification exam.
