Health Care Construction (HCC) Certificate Workshop®

ASHE: Health Care Construction Certificate (HCC) Workshop(R)

You want to establish your worth to your employer and show proof you have been trained to work in a health care construction environment...

Dubbed "the stamp of approval" by many employers, the ASHE Health Care Construction (HCC) Certificate proves to health care organizations that you have been properly trained to work in a health care construction environment—making you the desirable candidate for the job.

The HCC Workshop combines an e-learning program and a two-day seminar that offers education on critical topics in health care construction, including: the health care planning, design, and construction process; Life Safety Code® compliance; construction risk assessment; mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems (MEP); medical gas systems; medical technology; communication; 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:

  • Access to the e-learning program
  • Two-day seminar
  • On-site course materials
  • Certificate of course completion

Please note: The Health Care Construction Certificate is not to be confused with a certification and/or designation. The certificate from this program does not require an exam nor does it expire.
