Meetings sponsored by the NZSSA

These opportunities are provided for people involved with reprocessing reusable medical devices in any health service organization.  Health service organizations include but are not restricted to hospitals, private practice clinics, general practice clinics, dental, tattoo and skin piercing studios, beauty therapy clinics.

The NZSSA will be providing these opportunities to Association members at no cost (except NZSSA conference for which registration is reduced for members). This is in recognition of the member’s annual fee being returned to education.  Non-members pay a premium registration for the NZSSA conference.

Education opportunities will be added to this page as they are arranged.

Educator / Staff Trainer Meeting

Tuesday 7 November, 10am, via TEAMS

Hello everyone, the first educators/staff trainers meeting on November 7th at 10am. The purpose of this first meeting is for educators around NZ and team leaders that provide education to staff to meet, introduce themselves and discuss questions they may have. We will not be discussing course material at this meeting. It is important for all of us to stay connected and share any issues we might be having and to seek advice from our peers and to establish working relationships.
