Can you become a surgical tech online?

The short answer: no.

Becoming a certified surgical technologist requires hands-on training to be able to perform the day-to-day requirements of the job. This isn’t something you can learn entirely from online coursework. You will need to graduate with an associate degree from an accredited surgical technologist program like Herzing’s.

However, there is an online component of the Herzing program—you may complete some of your general education classes online.
