Surgical Technologists Online Education

Pfiedler Enterprises is partnering with the National Center for Competency Testing (NCCT). NCCT is an independent credentialing organization that has tested healthcare professionals throughout the United States since 1989.  NCCT has been awarded accreditation by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) for its Surgical Technologist certification program, the Tech in Surgery-Certified or TS-C(NCCT).  This is the same accreditation held by the CST(NBSTSA) program. NCCT offers certification paths to Surgical Technology program graduates from colleges holding USDE-recognized institutional accreditation: state-approved U.S. Department of Labor approved, or U.S. military programs; and for surgical technologists with qualifying work experience.

The continuing education activities listed on this site are ACCEPTED by NCCT for recertification credit for individuals holding their credentials.  The continuing education activities listed on this site are NOT approved by the Association of Surgical Technologists for NBSTSA recertification purposes.
