Click here for the frequently asked questions regarding the Instrument Processing course.

Have you already taken an Instrument Processing course and are in need of a refresher course, need to cover instruments only, or are in need of an extern placement?

We offer a refresher course for students who haven't had the course in some time, who are having trouble passing the CRCST exam, or who went to another program that did not offer extern placement. Most students in any of these instances will opt for our 8-week program - which takes place during our current sessions. We focus on the areas of study you are struggling with the most to get you comfortable and where you need to be to move forward.

Upon completion of the 8-week refresher course, students have the option to stay for the duration of the 15-week course. However, a price differential will be applied if the refresher course is extended to the full session.

* Interested participants must be able to prove their completion of a previous Instrument Processing program.


All prices include Tutoring, Access to Online Study Review, CPR Certification, Criminal Background Check,  Drug Screening,  and Backpack with Basic Study Supplies (notebooks, folder, ink pens, etc.).

Paid Study Materials include a Textbook, a Workbook, Flashcards, and more.
