Accredited Colleges Offering Anesthesia Technician Degrees

A career as an anesthesia technician is an entry-level position in a clinical medical setting. Anesthesia technicians work in hospital and clinical settings and provide assistance to doctors and nurses who manage anesthesia for surgeries. Anesthesia technicians are responsible for setting up supplies, organizing equipment, and preparing medications for the doctors and nurses. A technician will also care for reusable equipment and ensure that supplies and items are properly maintained. Technicians must respond to requests from doctors, nurses, and other supervisors, and must follow very regimented systems of caring for and organizing equipment.

Anesthesia technicians are typically required to complete two years of training in an associate degree program, and some workplaces may require specialized tech training courses with a specific certification and hands-on training. In some cases, employers will waive an academic degree requirement and accept valid work experience in a similar technical position in a hospital or clinic setting.

Anesthesia technicians must possess solid organizational and observational skills, as their jobs require a great deal of work with technical equipment. They must also possess strong active listening skills and the ability to follow directions and work independently, as much of their work involves setting up and monitoring equipment for operating rooms. Some of the duties require a great deal of precision as well as the ability to complete basic mathematical calculations.
