Regional Education Awards
Regional Directors are soliciting their members to nominate someone in their region that has genuinely contributed to promoting and furthering the continuing education of anesthesia technicians. Has someone:
- Helped you or a group of technicians and technologist gain valuable knowledge in the field of anesthesia technology?
- Volunteered their time to provide quality lectures for continuing education credits?
ASATT would like to pay tribute to those individuals who are not required or paid to advance the education of technicians and technologists, but whose sincere interest promotes education in our specialty. If you were able to associate a name to either one of those questions, show your appreciation by taking a few minutes of your time to complete and submit the Regional Education Awards Form.
I encourage every member to consider who in your region has exemplified this award. All nominations will go directly to the Regional Directors for review. If more than one person, facility, or company is nominated in a region, the Regional Director will ultimately choose the recipient.
Completed forms can be mailed, faxed or emailed to Alex LLanas. Nominations for Regional Education Awards must be received no later than July 1, 2017.

The Refresher Program is offered to certified anesthesia technologists who have not been substantially engaged in the practice of anesthesia technology for more than 2 years and must update their skills and knowledge of current clinical and theoretical practice in anesthesia technology in order to meet the established standards of practice and to apply for recertification through examination.
The Advancement Program is designed for the certified anesthesia technician who requires additional knowledge and skills in clinical practice in order to meet the established standards of practice of a certified anesthesia technologist.
Provisional Recertification may be granted for the previously certified anesthesia technologist/technician whose certification was allowed to lapse due to late or insufficient CE credits beyond the December 31st re-certification deadline.

The Growing Profession of Anesthesia Technology
Why consider an Anesthesia Technology Program?
As a growing allied health profession, the Anesthesia Technology profession specifically focuses on fundamental and advanced clinical procedures, which assist the anesthesia provider in the safe and efficient care of patients receiving anesthesia. Working under the direction of the anesthesia provider, the Anesthesia Technologist is a vital member of the anesthesia care team. They are proficient in the acquisition, preparation, and application of various types of equipment required for the delivery of anesthesia care. Technologists are trained to anticipate the needs of the patient and the provider, according to the surgical requirements, procedure or circumstance. Click to read full article.
