CBSPD Listing of CS/SPD CoursesThe 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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
