Certified Medical Device Reprocessing Technician (CMDRT)
CSA Standards has developed the first national personnel certification program, the Certified Medical Device Reprocessing Technician (CMDRT), based on Canadian standards and best practices for technicians reprocessing reusable medical devices in Canada.
As infections become increasingly more resistant to treatment, the role of sterile services (medical device reprocessing) technicians is becoming even more vital in preventing the spread of serious and deadly diseases.
The program is expected to:
- promote public health by improving the safety of the use of medical devices through helping to ensure the competency of Canadian medical device reprocessing technicians
- create a national standard for Canadian medical device reprocessing technicians
- lend authority and credibility to the profession while meeting the needs of the industry and regulators for relevant, standardized training (e.g., Provincial Infectious Diseases Advisory Committee (PIDAC) Best Practices Guidelines)
- and reduce the number of hours needed for on-the-job training.
