Gaps between your transporters’ performance and your department goals? Try CHT—Certified Healthcare Transporter Program




As Healthcare demands increasing accountability from departments and individuals, the need for skilled, consistently high-performing employees has become critical. Large numbers of retiring trained employees requires succession planning that may be accomplished by skilling up current workers to pursue those job openings. The lowered risk of investing in existing employees is appealingly cost effective. One popular option for achieving a reliable workforce with improved performance and attitude is certification of frontline workers. Numerous healthcare systems across the country have successfully used a unique training program designed to strengthen workers’ behavioral, cognitive, and technical skills—delivered by their own staffs as trained instructors. This webinar provides you with an overview of this Certified Healthcare Transporter (CHT) national program: what it is, why it works, and how to implement it.

Learning Objectives:

   1.Identifying key reasons for certifying your patient transporters
   2.Recognizing essential characteristics of effective certification training
   3.Exploring the content and national standards in the Certified Healthcare Transporter (CHT) training program
   4.Understanding how to achieve certification through in-house training delivery by your staff
