To be an integral part of the donor ‘gift’ process that provides tissues to help improve the lives of others.
The Tissue Banking Technology certificate program prepares individuals to attain the skills necessary to become a certified tissue banking technologist. Tissue banking technologists are integral in the recovery, processing, storage and distribution of human tissue.
Students in this program will gain basic knowledge of human anatomy, medical terminology, sterile techniques, surgical recovery and processing techniques, and all ethical and regulatory standards related to the field of Tissue Banking.
Careers in Tissue Banking Technology are growing both locally and nationally, as interest in new graft technology continues to rise. Locally, CBCCTS has expanded its operations and opened a new processing facility that will increase current processing capacity by 40%.
Certification (CTBS) is not mandated but is highly recommended. Credits attained through the TBT.STC program and one-year experience count toward eligibility to take the CTBS exam.
