Central Service Technical Training

7th Edition Boxed CourseCRCST Box Set 225.300

The 7th edition Boxed Course includes the Training Manual and the Workbook, and is designed to provide Central Service Professionals with the latest information on all aspects of sterile processing and to introduce future Central Service professionals to the fast-paced field of CS.

Helpful features to the text include over 300 color photos and charts and an easy-to-read format that identifies key words and concepts. Additionally, the Seventh Edition also includes several chapters focusing on unique aspects of CS, such as tools for cleaning, point of use preparation and transport, complex surgical instruments, point of use processing, tracking systems and ambulatory surgery and related practices.

All of the text's chapters have been tailored to meet the educational needs of today's (and tomorrow's) Central Service Professionals. Topics such as microbiology, medical terminology, and anatomy and physiology are presented with a focus on what the CS professional needs to know.

Please note: the 8th Edition is due for release in early Spring. Both the 7th and 8th Editions of the Central Service Technical Training boxed course or textbook will help prepare for the Certified and Registered Central Service Technical (CRCST) exam.
