    I do not see anyone else online offering a certification as an OB Tech. Is the certification exclusive to medtexx? Are you in the course? Tell me about it. I think I might just be able to take the test.

    I am currently an Ob scrub tech in the hospital and I would like to take the course through medtexx but I would like to hear from someone who has taken it already. If I take this and get certified my pay doubles. I would like to hear any input on this, thanks.

    I did hear a while ago about medtexx but never really found anyone that did it with them. I did mention it to my supervisor and it seemed too good to be true. That is something you need to go to school for and learn all the instruments and most of it is pure clinicals. I actually will be starting next August at BCC (just got my acceptance letter a few weeks ago) and once I am done, the hospital where I work at as a CNA at Mother/Baby, will train me for OB Scrub Tech which is what I want to do. Good Luck!!
