Earn your Surgical Technology certificate or degree through us!
Our Surgical Technology program is accredited through by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). Once you complete our Surgical Technology program, you’ll be eligible to sit for the Certified Surgical Technologist (CST) exam.
The prerequisites for our Surgical Technology programs are the same as our nursing and cardiac sonography programs. So, if you have some courses under your belt and have decided that a different program might not be your cup of tea, you can use them toward your surg tech certificate or degree instead and still be on track for a speedy journey into your new career.
At Kirtland, transferring credits is seamless. If you’ve already earned another degree or have been waiting to earn your Surgical Technology degree, we are ready — and help people like you every single day. Please don’t be intimidated by what you think it will take. We’re here to help you move forward and you can accomplish your goals faster than you think.
Our Surgical Technology program has two different tracts — a certificate and an associate degree.. Don’t sell yourself short; it only takes three classes beyond a Surgical Technology certificate to earn your associate degree — and they’re all online! We get that entering the job market ASAP is a big deal, but think about it — with only three additional classes (again, all online!) you can already be on the job, making money, and wrapping up your associate degree since your last three classes are all online. The possibilities are open and it’s entirely up to you!
If you’re ready to make a change in your life, you can do this! We’ll help you every step of the way.
