Sterile Processing

One way to get started in the medical industry is through becoming a sterile processing technician.

As a sterile processing technician, it will be your job to stock, sterilize and prepare tools and equipment that will be used during surgery.

You’ll be right in the thick of things and responsible for making sure everyone – doctors, nurses, patients, etc. – don’t face any contamination.
