How can you go from sterile processing to surgical technologist?
Our sterile processing program is designed to transition easily into a surgical technology associate degree program. Knowledge and skills learned in a sterile processing diploma curriculum closely applies to similar roles and responsibilities as a surgical technologist.
Every state has their own requirements, but in general surgical technologists typically have greater minimum requirements for education and certification. Earning an associate degree in surgical technology is considered the preferred educational model for entry-level positions by the Associate of Surgical Technologists (AST).
