Gwinnett Tech students ace surgical credentialing exam
August 04, 2014
GWINNETT-NORTH FULTON, Ga. – Gwinnett Tech's graduating class of surgical technologists have continued the program's long-running record of 100 percent pass rates on the Certified Surgical Technologist Exam – and have raised the bar further by earning the program's highest scores ever on the exam.
The "perfect" performance of the 12 graduating seniors extends the 100 percent pass rate to four years at Gwinnett Tech. The test assesses practical knowledge and skills in the field and awards the credential of CST (certified surgical technologist).
"Our students have always been high-performers on the exam and our pass rate is an important hallmark of our program. This year's graduates exceeded that standard with four scoring in the 90th percentile," said T.C. Parker, program director.
Gwinnett Tech's surgical technology students continually score above the national average on the CST examination, with the college's pass rate among first-time exam takers consistently at 90 percent or higher.
