Certified Healthcare Manager (CCHM)

Our flagship course, the CICTI “Manager†Certification Program is intended for Project Management, Superintendents, Estimators and those directly involved with ICRA implementation. The CCHM course can be conducted at our training facility, 14 miles south of Charlotte / Douglas International Airport (CLT) or at your onsite location. This 8-hour course begins by emphasizing the core concepts of Infection Control; what is Infection Control and why should we be concerned. The course then moves into planning, budgeting, design and maintenance strategies that focus on both operational healthcare risks and Corporate liability protection.

The tools and techniques for protecting the Environment of Care are demonstrated through hands-on exercises. Course attendees will not only hear about ideas, but will utilize and apply knowledge to achieve adequate levels of protection. Through using monitoring equipment during the exercises, students will derive an understanding of the effectiveness and limitations of select strategies. The course concludes with proficiency testing to provide assurances that the attendees can demonstrate a benchmark level of ICRA knowledge. Upon successful completion, the attendees are awarded the CCHM designation which is valid for three years. A new Certification will be issued every three years, provided the “CICTI Certified Healthcare Manager†demonstrates continued proficiency (test) and mastery of the advances in Infection Control for Healthcare Construction.

Certification Maintenance

CICTI does not require annual maintenance fees or membership. While we encourage attendance of refresher training, CICTI does not require CCHT’s, CCHM’s, CCHW’s or CCFT’s to re-attend the course in which they were originally Certified. CICTI Programs are ‘focused’ on “Vision Enhancement.” Our aim is to forever change the way Contractors and Owners view the planning and execution of high risk scopes within functional Healthcare Facilities.

CICTI Certifications are valid from the date of issue through the following time frames:
CICTI Certified Healthcare Trainer – CCHT: 3 Years
CICTI Certified Healthcare Manager – CCHM: 3 Years
CICTI Certified Healthcare Worker – CCHW: 2 Years
CICTI Certified Facilities Trainer – CCFT: 2 Years

CICTI provides ongoing education through its web-based resource library and through email-based bulletins. All CICTI Certified Individuals have secure access to these resources and can maintain their Certifications online.

Recertification is attained via webinar, consisting of fee payment, online video, and concluding with a short quiz to ensure knowledge retention.
