Health Care Construction Workshop


17.5 CECs (1 CEC = 1 contact hour)
Health Care Construction Workshop – 12.5 CECs
Health Care Construction e-learning – 5 CECs

Validate your knowledge of working in a health care environment.

Completely updated to include the latest ruling from CMS, the Health Care Construction Workshop combines an e-learning course and a two-day seminar. The program offers education with a comprehensive risk management approach to critical topics in health care construction, including: the health care planning, design, and construction process; Life Safety Code® compliance; construction risk assessment (including general risks and a special focus on infection risks); mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems (MEP); medical gas systems; medical technology; and project expectations.

You will gain an understanding of the latest compliance issues in health care construction, and learn what owners, staff, and patients expect of constructors working in the health care environment.

Provided with this program:

  • 60-day access to the e-learning program prior to the 2-day onsite workshop
  • Participant handbook with additional tools and resources
  • Q&A with your nationally recognized expert faculty
  • Certificate of course attendance
  • Recognition on upon workshop completion

Please note: The Health Care Construction certificate of attendance is not to be confused with an independent certification program (ex. Certified Healthcare Constructor or “CHC”) and/or designation. The certificate of attendance from this program does not require an exam nor does it expire.
