Anesthesia Technologist Bridge Program

Anesthesia Technologist Bridge Program

College of DuPage Continuing Education offers this online bridge program as one of the first in the nation to address the changing credentialing for anesthesia technicians. Students train to assist licensed anesthesiologists in providing safe and quality care to surgical patients. The classes are instructor-based and delivered entirely online. Students earn the 40 CEUs needed to sit for the American Society of Anesthesia Technologist (ASATT) National Certificate Exam to become certified as an anesthesia technologist.

To qualify, students must be a certified anesthesia technician from ASATT, have five years of experience and show proof of ACLS and BCLS at the time of the exam.

Prerequisites

Prior to registering, students must submit a pre-approval application to ASATT with a check for $250. The application must be approved before the certified anesthesia technician begins the program coursework.
Contact healthcare@cod.edu to receive a pre-filled application for ASATT approval.
