CBSPD Listing of CS/SPD Courses

The CBSPD is attempting to develop a list of all SPD courses out there as a reference for people looking for this type of training. Even if the registration deadline has passed, we will still keep the course on our list for future reference (or until it is asked to be deleted).

If you have information about an SPD course that you would like to share, please fill out our on-line form. A course listing will be provided on this page for free.


Does your course need to be removed? Please contact webmaster@sterileprocessing.org
with the Reference # assigned to your course on this page.

The CBSPD is not affiliated with any of the courses on this page but they may be used for training for our exams as long as the instructors are either IAHCSMM/CBSPD certified or have extensive experience in the field. Be sure to investigate each course before you sign up to be sure that it is a course that offers good training from a professional and that the course is using at least the Basics of Sterile Processing Textbook (made by Sterile Processing University). If any course offers only the old ASHCSP Tech Training Manual or any IAHCSMM textbook, then it will greatly decrease your chance of passing any of the CBSPD certification exams. The CBSPD reserves the right to remove any course listed on this page if deemed necessary.

** Current Number of Courses Posted = 18**

STERILE PROCESSING UNIVERSITY ON-LINE COURSES!! - by Nancy Chobin - CBSPD!

www.sterileprocessinguniversity.com

ANNOUNCING THE REPROCESSING OF FLEXIBLE ENDOSCOPES COURSE ON-LINE!!

This course is designed for employees working in any healthcare facility (hospital, surgery center, doctor’s office, etc.) performing reprocessing of flexible GI endoscopes and/or bronchoscopes. It is recommended that after completion of this education, unless you are already working in a GI/Endo department processing GI scopes, you will need extensive hands-on experience processing GI scopes and bronchoscopes. This can be arranged with a local facility where you can volunteer your time.

At the completion of this course, a certificate of completion will be provided. This program will also prepare candidates to sit for The Certification Board for Sterile Processing& Distribution’s (CBSPD) Flexible Endoscope Reprocessor certification examination.

The fee for this course is $25 per module plus the final exam.  Total cost is $350 which is far less than most courses.  You pay for each module as you take it so you do not have to pay the entire fee all at once. You do not pay for the entire course up front (but we give you the option if you want). There is no time limit on completion of the course.  You learn at your own rate. 

Module 1 - Forward and History of Endoscopy
Module 2 - Rules, Regulations, and Safety – Part I
Module 3 - Rules, Regulations, and Safety – Part II
Module 4 - Anatomy & Physiology
Module 5 - Microbiology
Module 6 - Infection Control – Part I
Module 7 - Infection Control - Part II
Module 8 - Medical Terminology and Medical Procedures Involving Flexible Endoscopes
Module 9 - Scope Cleaning Room and Cleaning Agents/Detergents
Module 10 - High-Level Disinfection Area and High-Level Disinfectants
