Program Options

Surgical Technology AAD Program (accelerated/alternate delivery)

This program option is offered for on-the-job-trained surgical technicians. It is provided via alternate delivery, but because the target population consists solely of on-the-job surgical technicians currently employed in Wyoming, the program is not accelerated. Alternate delivery of the program is provided through online instruction and portfolio development.
Goal: To provide formal education to the remaining on-the-job-trained surgical technicians currently employed in Wyoming and establish eligibility for the National Board Certifying Examination.

Program outline
  • A list of program courses can be found online
  • Program prerequisite courses are available through any WY community college.
  • Program core SURG-prefix courses are delivered online in sequence beginning each August.
  • SURG-prefix lab and clinical course requirements are fulfilled by development of a portfolio documenting achievement of the course requirements.
  • All students must take the National Board Certifying examination on campus in Cheyenne.
