Accredited Surgical Tech Schools and Programs

Institutional Accreditation

All Everest campuses are institutionally accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting agency to ensure quality of education. Institutional accreditation is through either the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) or the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). ACICS and ACCSC are both recognized by the United States Department of Education and by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.

For more information about institutional accreditation, please visit the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) website at www.acics.org or the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) at www.accsc.org.

Programmatic Accreditation

Programmatic accreditation assesses the quality of instruction by measuring the curriculum against agreed-upon industry standards. Accredited surgical tech programs must meet expectations set by professionals of that industry that demonstrate the sufficient skills to be able to function successfully in that health care profession. Accreditation in health care is an important tool to ensure that students are well-prepared to enter the health care workforce and meet industry standards.

Everest's Surgical Technologist programs are accredited either through the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Program (CAAHP) as recommended by the Accreditation Review Council on Education in Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (ARC/STSA) or through the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).

To find out more information about the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHP), visit www.caahep.org. For more information regarding the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES), visit www.abhes.org.
