What does it take to completely transform your career and your life? More! You need more challenge, more responsibility, more respect, more freedom, and more money. That is what the right Surgical Assistant Program can deliver. Make the wrong choice and you could get stuck holding retractors, suctioning, and cutting suture. Choose wisely and your surgeons will trust you with a great deal more.
Historically, the first assistant in surgery (or the Surgical Assistant – sometimes called an SA) was another surgeon. You can’t provide a service less than a second surgeon would and expect the challenge, responsibility, respect, freedom, and money you are looking for. In order to effectively replace a second surgeon in the procedure, you’ll need surgical skills that rival a surgeon’s and the knowledge to apply them wisely. That’s what ACE Trained Assistants™ are known for!
If you are already assisting in surgery but just hold retractors, suction, and cut suture, ACE training can dramatically expand your capabilities, responsibilities, and earning potential. To make it even more attractive, we make surgical assistant training easy and affordable for busy OR professionals – a fraction the price of some programs, distance-learning, only 6 days from work for hands-on training, and clinicals at the hospital you work at and with surgeons who already like and support you. (Note: some of you may only need the hands-on training to get the results you are looking for)
Graduates of the ACE Surgical Assistant Program qualify and are prepared to sit for the nationally recognized ABSA certifying exam. You’ll earn recognition and the respect that comes with wearing the prestigious SA-C title (Surgical Assistant – Certified).
ACE Surgical Assisting provides the most effective, ‘in the trenches’ education, training, certification eligibility, and services uniquely designed to help ACE Trained Assistants™ more fully replace a second surgeon in the Operating Room as the first assistant.
ACE training takes advantage of the latest in technology and adult learning science so working surgical professionals are empowered to advance their careers, increase their financial wellbeing, and elevate the quality and safety of surgical care throughout the United States and around the world.
