Happy New Year!  The question for 2019: Is it the right time for the Healthcare Facilities Technician (HFT) academic credential and Certified Healthcare Facilities Technician (CHFT) certification?

For those of you who are new to the HFL program or reading about it for the first time, allow me to give you a quick review of the journey towards professional credentials for those working or wishing to enter the healthcare facilities technician field.  Over the past couple of years, the HFL program has been presenting and gathering feedback on the need and desire to create an academic career pathway for technicians. There has been a consistent and growing response that it is greatly needed and that using the online instruction method combined with in the field competency based training would be effective.  It would seem now is the time to launch the program, or is it?

In order to demonstrate the need and show the professions support, we will need to get at least 50 applicants for the program by May of 2019.   If we can get 50 applicants by end of May-2019, then the HFL program can move forward with a Fall 2019 start. 

There will be webinars January 17th and February 14th of 2019 to explain the program and answer questions.  Please share this information with your peers, leadership, and anyone else you think may be interested in the first ever academic career pathway for healthcare facilities technicians.
