Surgical Technologist

Surgical technologists (also referred to as “Operating Room Specialists,” but will be referenced as Surgical Technologist in this document and aligning materials) work as members of a healthcare team alongside physicians and surgeons, registered nurses, and other healthcare workers.

Before an operation, surgical technologists prepare the operating room by setting up surgical instruments and equipment. They also prepare patients for surgery by washing and disinfecting incision sites, positioning the patients on the operating table, covering them with sterile drapes, and taking them to and from the operating room. Surgical technologists prepare sterile solutions and medications used in surgery and check that all surgical equipment is working properly. They help the surgical team put on sterile gowns and gloves.

During an operation, surgical technologists pass instruments and supplies to surgeons and first assistants. They also hold retractors, hold internal organs in place during the procedure, or set up robotic surgical equipment. Technologists also may handle specimens taken for laboratory analysis.

Once the operation is complete, surgical technologists may apply bandages and other dressings to the incision site. They may also help transfer patients to recovery rooms and restock operating rooms after a procedure.

Database Technician

The Database Technician (also commonly referred to as a “Database Administrator” or increasingly referred to as a “Cloud Administrator” where applicable) implements, supports and maintains the overall database infrastructure (including cloud-based environments, where applicable) and services for an organization. More specifically, a Database Tech/Admin manages and configures a company’s database including storage, migration, conversion, queries, protection, performance upgrades and cost efficiencies. It is important to note that because of increasing levels of data security concerns and the sensitive nature of data stored, backup, disaster recovery, and securing databases are essential components of a Database Tech/Admin’s job. Along these lines, the Database Tech/Admin oversees access to all database information and stays up to date with new releases. Equally important, the Database Tech/Admin must be very knowledgeable about privacy, confidentiality, and data protection from both conceptual and legislative perspectives.

Database Tech/Admins work closely with a variety of users to ensure internal and external data collection needs are met. Frequently, the Database Tech/Admin must move information stored in legacy databases to new ones and collaborate with Network Administrators to ensure databases are secured, properly linked and aligned with a company’s computer network. Whenever system maintenance is performed, the Database Tech/Admin troubleshoots to locate existing and potential defects. Furthermore, this person is responsible for guaranteeing that stored data comes from reliable sources.

MSSC Certified Production Technician (CPT©)

The purpose of the Certified Production Technician (CPT©) program is to recognize through certification individuals who demonstrate mastery of the core competencies of manufacturing production at the front-line (entry-level through front-line supervisor) through successful completion of the certification assessments. The goal of the CPT certification program is to raise the level of performance of production workers both to assist the individuals in finding higher-wage jobs and to help employers ensure their workforce increases the company's productivity and competitiveness.

The CPT program consists of five individual certificate modules: Safety; Quality Practices & Measurement; Manufacturing Processes & Production; Maintenance Awareness and Green Production. Candidates must earn the first four certificates to receive the full CPT certification. (Note: At this time Green is not required for full-CPT certification.)

MSSC developed the CPT program to assess and certify the skills of front-line manufacturing production workers. We define front-line production workers as entry-level through first level of supervision within all sectors of the manufacturing industry. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are about 9 million jobs in this category in the U.S. MSSC is a leading, nationwide national certification body. Those who succeed in MSSC Assessments receive industry-recognized, nationally portable MSSC credentials. The CPT program was developed by industry experts and is updated annually to ensure that the skills assessed are the most relevant to today's manufacturing employers.

Common Employability Skills

Today, employers in every industry sector emphasize the need for employees with certain foundational skills. These include a strong academic grounding in reading and math, as well as individual abilities such as teamwork, problem solving, work ethic and integrity. While employers rely on employees to have the same basic skills, they do not always talk about or label them the same way. This makes it difficult for prospective employees and educators to know exactly what it takes to be ready to succeed in any career path in any industry.
