Optional Payment Plans

Don’t let finances stop you! We offer payment plans starting at $250/month. Custom plans are also available upon request.

Flexible Clinicals in 1 or more Specialties

Our program does not require multi-specialty clinical rotations. This is perfect for specialized surgical centers or STs working in just one specialty. However, you will still feel prepared for the national SA-C certification exam. We have just introduced the ABSA’s comprehensive study guide into our program. We are the only program to include it into our SA training program.

Hands-On Lab Optional

Want more hands on training? RASA can assist with getting you an intensive, hands-on lab to supplement your learning. However, it is not required to complete the program.
