Our Mission: "To assist individuals to acquire the knowledge to think, reason and foster continued competency"

Welcome to Sterile Processing "University", (SPU) LLC. This is a place for individuals wishing to learn the sterile processing profession or continuing their sterile processing education through approved Continuing Education programs.

Hello! Are you ready to learn like I did?

Certification is becoming more important than ever for sterile processing professionals. With the August 2004 law in New Jersey requiring all sterile processors to be certified, the emphasis on the importance of certification has emerged. Once certified, personnel must remain up-to-date (competent) in all areas of practice. This includes Roles and Responsibilities, Life Sciences (Anatomy / Physiology / Microbiology), Decontamination, Preparation Packaging, Sterilization, Sterile Storage, Inventory Control and Supply Distribution. This site will focus on these topics as well as management topics including fiscal and personnel management.

The continuing education programs on this site have been developed and contributed by a variety of sterile processing professionals, all of whom are certified.

Some of the advantages of continuing competency include:

  • Increased productivity, work quality
  • Increased promotability
  • Reduced turnover rates
  • Required by regulatory agencies (require documentation of training)
  • Increased job satisfaction
  • Increased customer satisfaction
All of these reasons are important today in healthcare. If there are topics you would like to see presented, let us know.
