Event Details

RUMED Online Training Program:
The complexity of instrument reprocessing and related processes is increasing, requiring a deep understanding of correlations within various workflows. This expertise is crucial for making informed decisions and upholding the high quality standards in our daily work at RUMED. Achieving this requires a strong foundation of technical and procedural knowledge. To meet these demands, the RUMED Academy offers a comprehensive online training program consisting of two levels: 'Reprocessing Technician RUMED (Level 1)' and 'Senior Processing Technician RUMED (Level 2)'.

The modules are conducted in English, available also in Spanish in Latin America, and delivered by experienced international experts with extensive knowledge and practical experience in the field of application in the operating room (OR) and instrument reprocessing. The content of the modules is based on the comprehensive DGSV and HSPA courses, ensuring a well-rounded and relevant training experience.

Reprocessing Technician RUMED (Level I):
The Level I program consists of 14 individual modules (see below “Module Overview”). The target group is RUMED managers, RUMED technicians and other employees in RUMED with proficient English/Spanish language skills and practical experience in a reprocessing structure for medical devices.

Module 9.0: Material and Instrument Sciences I:
The production, reprocessing, and maintenance of surgical instruments is critical for ensuring optimal patient safety and quality of care. This module will cover the various factors that impact the production of instruments, including materials, surfaces, and their influence on reprocessing processes. We will also examine the potential changes in surface characteristics that can occur during reprocessing and discuss strategies for minimizing these changes. Proper maintenance and testing procedures according to DIN standards will also be covered, including practical tips and workshops to provide hands-on experience with instrument production, reprocessing, and testing. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the importance of proper instrument production, reprocessing, and testing, and the strategies and best practices necessary to ensure optimal patient safety and quality of care.

Upon successful completion of this module, a certificate with 2.5 CE points by the HSPA is issued as proof of achievement. Each module concludes with a knowledge quiz. Once you have completed all modules and provided the corresponding certificates to the RUMED Academy, you will be awarded the Reprocessing Technician RUMED (Level 1) certificate.
