Virtual Educator

What is a “Virtual Educator”?

  • Not every facility is lucky enough to employ a full-time educator, so we are offering our 100 years of combined Sterile Processing experience to facilities at a fraction of the cost of a full-time educator.  We offer on-site consultation, teach certification classes for uncertified technicians (or other staff), offer 12 CEU’s yearly for all SPD staff, and we will be available as a resource to all your staff, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  It’s like having a Sterile Processing expert available to you anytime you need them.

Services Include:

  • IAHCSMM CRCST Certification Classes for unlimited employees at the facility (for SPD staff and other departments too!).
  • 12 Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) provided to all SPD staff over a rolling 12-month period.  New lessons are posted monthly so this service is available regardless of certification deadlines.
  • Policy Review – Just send us whatever policies are up for review, and we will make suggestions for strengthening them based on current guidelines.
  • Competency Review – Send us a copy of your current new-hire competencies or yearly competencies, and we will review and report on potential regulatory gaps.
  • 24/7/365 support for all Sterile Processing related questions through the Sterile Education mobile app.  Just submit your question, and a Sterile Processing expert will return your call!

Optional Services:

  • We know that you may not need consultation services each year, so we added them as an optional value here.  Our one-day fee of $4,495 has been reduced for customers so you get 2 days for the price of 1!
  • 2 days of on-site consultation with one of Sterile Education’s expert consultants:
    • Day 1 to observe and report on potential areas of regulatory concern.
    • Day 2 to return and see if all concerns have been remedied.
