Are slides available?
These slides or the CHEST Program slides?
Hi, Bill! Yes, these slides and recording will be available after today’s presentation.
With the train-the-trainer model, can we continue to offer CHEST training with new staff onboarding in the future, after the first 10? Thinking a year or two ahead after this initial roll out.
Once CHEST certified, what is the frequency or recertification?
15 hours of education every 3 years.
Yes, Allison. Your T-CHEST trainer should continue training EVS personnel as they onboard, using this content. Importantly, it will be good for your T-CHEST trainer to be an AHE member to update training as new information is added. That is a key reason why this program includes a 1-year AHE membership for the T-CHEST trainer.
Shelby, thank you! So helpful!
Sorry if this will be addressed, but will the continuing ed hours be available only through AHE?
It is available from anywhere. Annual compter based training at your facility can count.
Yes, we offer ongoing education on virtual platforms
Thank you. Great to hear that our annual organization competencies can count as well.
AHE membership provides significant resources in addition to education, such as an EVS Competency Model, Practice Guidelines for Healthcare Environmental Cleaning, amongst many others. See https://www.ahe.org/
Is this offered in hospitals that have EVS that is contracted vs employed?
how much does recertification cost?
Josephine, this program is currently offered to facilities’ EVS Director/Manager/Primary Trainer whether contracted or employees. Our goal is to provide access to this training to build workforce competencies and support EVS providers to drive improved outcomes.
