Interested in Anesthesia Technology?

Our program combines academic and clinical instruction that includes learning to prepare, maintain, and troubleshoot complex anesthesia equipment and suctions fluids, and assembling complex equipment. Skyline College offers an 18‑month program admitting one cohort each Fall semester, and includes clinical practice. With an additional 30 units of General Education credits, a graduate of the program may apply for an Associate of Science degree in Anesthesia Technology.

The Skyline College Anesthesia Technology program is by special application only. Applications are accepted (once available) until June 1.

How do I apply?

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Anesthesia Technology program is on hold. At Skyline College, we pride ourselves in providing students with quality allied health training programs, and we sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. Please check back on this site for any updates on the reopening of the program.

An Anesthesia Technologist (AT) assists the Anesthesia Care Provider in the safe and efficient care of patients under anesthesia. Anesthesia is a fundamental and advanced clinical procedure where the Anesthesia Care Provider relies on well-trained personnel to ensure everything is ready for the patient. This is a satisfying, interesting, and fast-paced profession that offers job security and mobility as a vital member of the anesthesia care team.

Career Outlook

A typical day for an Anesthesia Technologist starts at 7:00 am. The AT reports to the anesthesia workroom, reviews the patients and plans how to assist the Anesthesia Care Providers for the day. Anesthesia Technologists may work in a variety of clinical settings, including general medical and surgical hospitals, and outpatient care centers.

As a new program, the anesthesia technology program at Skyline College has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation for Anesthesia Technology Education (CoA-ATE). This letter is NOT a CAAHEP accreditation status; it is a status signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation Standards through Letter of Review application materials and other documentation. Letter of Review is recognized by the American Association of Anesthesia Technologists & Technicians (ASATT) for eligibility to take the credentialing exam. However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.

Skyline College Allied Health Sciences has a new Simulation Laboratory located in Building 7, Room 7-211. The lab features state-of-the-art Gaumard adult, infant and premie tetherless simulators. The lab also includes full patient monitors, beds, standard clinical supplies and a video recording system.

Patient simulators can provide all vital signs, including heart & respiratory rates, pulses, lung sounds, pupil response and oxygen saturation. The manikins are able to realistically simulate virtually any medical problem or condition, including cardiac, respiratory, neurological, musculoskeletal and metabolic issues.

The patient simulators provide a total hands-on experience in which students are able to see the results of their actions in real time. Currently, the Simulation Lab is used for training students in the Surgical Technology, Respiratory Care, Anesthesia Technology, and Central Services Technology programs.

If faculty at Skyline have any questions or would like to schedule some time in the lab, please contact Barbara Tovar, Lab Coordinator & Technologist at (650) 738-7928.

Upon completion of the program, students will be able to:

  • Use aseptic technique in clinical and laboratory environments.
  • Discuss and understand the role of microorganisms in healthy individuals and in infectious diseases.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the structure of the human body.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the functions of the organ systems of the human body.
  • Apply the concept of homeostasis to basic principles in medicine.
  • Discuss and understand the principles of cellular metabolism, molecular genetics, and immunology.
  • Demonstrate the ability to report scientific information appropriately and effectively.
  • Utilize the scientific method to analyze and interpret data.
  • Use the periodic table and other reference sources to gather information needed to solve chemical problems.
  • Identify functional groups or reaction types and understand the role of biologically important molecules (carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids) in the body.

Other Program Requirements

Prior to starting classes, all students admitted to the program are required to complete a satisfactory physical examination, immunization documentation verifying freedom of communicable disease, a social security referenced background check, and drug test.

Program Accreditation

As a new program, the anesthesia technology program at Skyline College has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation for Anesthesia Technology Education (CoA-ATE). This letter is NOT a CAAHEP accreditation status; it is a status signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation Standards through Letter of Review application materials and other documentation. Letter of Review is recognized by the American Association of Anesthesia Technologists & Technicians (ASATT) for eligibility to take the credentialing exam. However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.

View the CoA-ATE's Letter of Review for Skyline College.
