Surgical tech certificate programs are designed to give a surgical technician student a practical, market-ready career education in surgical technology in a relatively short amount of time. Certificate programs build on existing educational foundation courses, so most students in surgical tech certificate programs already hold a degree in another subject. Certificate programs generally cover career skills such as surgical techniques, sterilization practices and patient care basics.
Certificate programs in surgical technology usually last from nine months to a year.
