CHT Training is NOW ONLINE and AVAILABLE IN SPANISH!
$129 a person and earns you 6 contact hours
In response to ever tightening travel and education budgets, KSHE – in conjunction with the Owensboro Community and Technical College (OCTC) - developed an online course to expand the reach of its popular Certified Healthcare Technician Training Program. This timely offering was initially established in a classroom setting and delivered within Kentucky state lines. Now the program has been transferred to the online/distance learning environment to expand the reach of the training to any employed or contract technician providing services in a healthcare environment.
The program covers four primary operational functions:
Module 1 - "Before you Arrive" Pre-construction Risk Assessment
(Infection Prevention, Fire Safety, Patient Privacy, & Vaccinations)
Module 2 - "When you Arrive"
(Parking, Security, Permits, Emergency Codes, & Teamwork)
Module 3 - "While you're Working / Before you Leave"
(Odors, Vibration & Noise, Compartmentalization, Debris Removal, etc.)
Module 4 - "Environmental & OSHA Safety"
(Confined Space, Ladder Safety, Blood-borne Pathogens & much more)
KSHE Certification Programs are renewable every 3 years. Recertification must be earned within 60 days from the certification expiration date. Any ASHE, KSHE or other ASHE chapter educational class is acceptable as contact hours. Other classes must be reviewed by KSHE for approval.
- CHT Renewals must either retake the course or submit 6 contact hours in Healthcare Engineering.
