CHC, Certified Healthcare Contractor
Share |

CHC is a 1-day class and exam offered 2-3 times each year. The Safe Day One (formerly CHT) course is a pre-requisite for the CHC. Cost is TBD. The CHC class earns you 6 contact hours. 

The purpose of this landmark program is to educate contractors (owners, operations managers, project managers, etc.) in the many critical aspects that are unique to working in healthcare facilities. Hospitals created the concept of 24/7; therefore, whenever a contractor performs services in a healthcare facility, the team of employees must be familiar with the Patient Safety, Patient Privacy, Infection Control, Risk Assessment and more. This Program will give you the knowledge you need to successfully navigate the rules and regulations that hospitals and their contractors must abide by.
