Surgical Technology

 

The Surgical Technology program includes both theory and practical clinical experience designed to prepare the student to pass the national certification exam for surgical technologists. Surgical techs can work in many different specialties in a variety of settings such as hospitals, dental offices, or outpatient clinics. Some of these specialties include Eye, Neuro, OBGYN, Ortho, Plastics and so many more.

Depending on a number of factors some including geographic location graduates can reasonably expect entry level salaries ranging around 54,000 a year.

Due to limited enrolment into the program, we cannot accept everyone that applies. When the perquisites are fulfilled, there is an application process. From there candidates go through an interview process before being accepted into the core program. Once accepted into the program you will receive hand on training and valuable insight in knowledge and skills in sterile and aseptic techniques that is required for your new career.
