Cancun is the ideal setting for technical training
The training was held in Spanish and provided by Tuttnauer's sterilization expert Mr. Maimon Asaraf. The first week was dedicated to tabletop autoclaves and laboratory equipment. The second week focused on large hospital autoclaves for sterilization within the CSSD (Central Sterile Service Department).
30 technicians attended the first week of training and 40 autoclave technicians participated in the second week. Technicians came from all parts of the region including: Miami in the north to Argentina down south, Cuba and the Caribbean Islands.
It was a delight to meet the people who service Tuttnauer autoclaves and to provide them with the best practical and theoretical training they can get. The atmosphere was warm and friendly though I cannot say the same about the weather, which was not welcoming. We encountered some wicked tropical storms that took us by surprise.
Here's a group picture from the first week of training. If you were there, you are more than welcome to tag yourself, comment or send us your pictures and impressions from the training.
