As a 60-year-old professional organization, The International Association of Healthcare Central Service Material Management (IAHCSMM) represents sterile processing (SP) professionals around the world. All of their 37,000 members receive certification through their IAHCSMM exam, as well as professional support and continuing education.
Sterile processing professionals work behind the scenes, performing an essential duty for high-quality patient care. That is why IAHCSMM's advocacy work is crucial to the success of its members. The IAHCSMM advocates on behalf of SP professionals by educating state legislators on the importance of their role in the healthcare system.
The IAHCSMM offers five different types of certification including Certified Registered Central Service Technician (CRCST) and Certified Healthcare Leader (CHL). Exam Edge's practice tests make an exceptional IAHCSMM certification study guide, so take a look at all of our IAHCSMM tests today.

Scientific studies have proven that practice tests are an effective tool for exam preparation. According to an article published in Educational Psychology Review, those who take practice tests before the real exam perform better than those that don't. Integrating our IAHCSMM study material into your study plan will increase your chances of passing the test on the first try.
In fact, the study's researchers, Katherine A. Rawson and John Dunlosky assert that taking multiple practice tests improves final performance even more. This technique is most effective when different practice tests are taken repeatedly over a long period of time. This learning method is called paced studying, and Exam Edge's IAHCSMM practice tests fit a slow and steady schedule perfectly.
Each week you could take one of our IAHCSMM certification practice test quizlets, giving yourself at least a day between test-taking sessions. Each practice test can be taken up to four times, either timed or untimed, and each question comes with a detailed explanation of the answer.
Our detailed question explanations make Exam Edge's IAHCSMM quizzes stand out from other practice exams. As you take each practice test multiple times, you begin to understand your knowledge gaps. This allows you to target your learning in these areas, making your study time more efficient and productive. Each IAHCSMM test offers a score upon completion so you can track your improvement over time.
Pairing flashcards with practice tests will enhance your learning, according to research published in Psychology Learning and Teaching. As you take an Exam Edge practice quiz, jot down the subjects that need more study. Later, make flashcards and review them in short study sessions until you have mastered each. Recalling knowledge trains your brain to recall this information during the real IAHCSMM exam.
