KSHCSP CRST Certification Class

The Kansas Society of Hospital Central Service Professionals (KSHCSP)would like to announce that the next CRCST (Certified Registered Central Service Technician) class will begin on December 7th and running for 23 consecutive weeks.  We will review 1 chapter per week so as not to cause information overload. This will be an online class that is scheduled for every Saturday from 11am to 1pm.  In order to receive the invitation to participate in this class, you must register with Thomas Forster.  The only cost to participate is the purchase of the book for the course.   To purchase the book, go to IAHCSMM.org and order the Central Service Boxed Set,  7th Edition.  This is an open class available to anyone in our field, not just KSHCSP members, so, feel free to pass this along to any of your co-workers.  We look forward to your participation!
