Central Service/Sterile Processing

Why Choose the Central Service/Sterile Processing Program?

Central Service/Sterile Processing is a dynamic and growing field in healthcare that is critically important to the health and safety of patients. New regulations and standards have demanded a larger workforce in this area, increasing the need for trained technicians who not only have the basic skills in sterile processing but who also understand the importance of the process.

Critical thinking skills are key in this constantly changing and fast-paced medical field, and wages have steadily increased to help recruit quality employees. Clover Park's Central Service/Sterile Processing program has been a major resource in providing excellent candidates for these positions locally.

If you have a passion for helping people and an interest in the tools needed for medical procedures, this program and career path might be the perfect fit.

Our Central Service/Sterile Processing Technician Program can prepare you in just three quarters to work with operating room staff to provide sterile instruments and supplies needed for surgery.
