Certified Healthcare Trainer (CCHT)

CICTI provides a Train-the-Trainer methodology whereby individuals with sufficient healthcare and training experience can be licensed to deliver the four-hour CICTI Certified Healthcare Worker (CCHW) course. This two-day Trainer course is conducted in conjunction with scheduled CCHM (Manager) courses. The Manager course is effectively Day 1 of the Trainer course. Day 2 of the Trainer course involves review of the 4 hour Worker course materials and exercises to ensure effective future delivery by the licensed Trainer.

Following successful completion of the Trainer course, your in-house trainer delivers the Worker course and proctors the post-course exam to course attendees. The tests are then submitted to CICTI for review and issuance of the CCHW Certification to individual students.

Course Time: 2 Days
Cost Per Person: $1000

    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.


    Renewing your CICTI Certification is easy. Login to the Members area, click “Renew” under your listed Certification(s) and follow the on-screen prompts.
