The Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE) of the American Hospital Association (AHA) recently launched a set performance and knowledge criteria for Environmental Services Technicians. The goal of the program is to ensure frontline employees are thoroughly prepared for service in healthcare. The Certified Healthcare Environmental Services Technician™ (CHEST) credentialing program will strengthen healthcare facilities with a well-trained, skilled, entry-level workforce.
Beauregard Health System is proud to announce that three Environmental Service Technicians successfully completed the intensive certification program and are CHEST certified, joining three other seasoned CHEST associates. They received this certification after completing twelve weeks of extensive coursework, hands-on instruction and a comprehensive exam.
