AHE recently launched the CHEST certification program: A designation which sets national standards specifically for environmental services technicians working in healthcare, backed by AHE’s parent company, the American Hospital Association.

Here are a few advantages of certification:

 90% of those who hold a certification through the American Hospital Association say it’s a valued achievement in their career.
 86% of healthcare human resource managers and directors take a closer look at employees with certifications.
 Employees who are more confident in achieving their work goals are 83% more likely to be engaged on the job, which correlates to greater job satisfaction.*
