Certificación: Certified Central Service Vendor Partner (CCSVP)

55 West Wacker Drive Suite 501 Chicago, IL 60601

As a vendor, it can take a long time to set an appointment with a Sterile Processing (SP) management team. You have to make a commitment to make a connection, and you are lucky to receive a few precious minutes of their undivided attention. Having in-depth knowledge of SP operations, procedures and terminology can be your key to establishing a professional link with the department's decision-makers.

One of the best ways to improve your SP knowledge is to become a CCSVP. The CCSVP certification program is designed to recognize vendors who have demonstrated knowledge of SP concepts and processes, including the decontamination, inspection, assembly, packaging, and sterilization of reusable surgical instruments.
