Does anyone know of any training/schooling opportunities in Northern California that AREN'T Skyline College (that accepts students once a year and is an hour away) and Everest College in San Jose (that costs $30,000)??? I went to nursing school and had to drop out for personal reasons and now I want to look into the field of surgical technology but I can not afford 30k for school. And Skyline has a huge waiting list, plus the commute! I've looked everywhere it seems and there's nothing! Where do the hospitals in the area find their surgical techs?
