The Certified Healthcare Facility Manager (CHFM) program offered by the American Hospital Association Certification Center is one way that you can validate your knowledge in the profession and gain further recognition among your peers. The CHFM certification exam is based on practical experience and knowledge you may have gained academically as well as on the job. While there are many ways that you may choose to prepare for the exam, the CHFM Certification Preparation Workshop review course is one of those ways. Although participation in the review class does not guarantee that you will pass the exam, it is one way that you may choose to prepare for the exam and to validate your knowledge of content covered on the exam.

ASHE has developed an educational program intended to aid CHFM candidates in their preparation for the exam. The program is a one-day program, presented by an ASHE faculty member, which presents material from the five subject areas of the CHFM exam. This course is intended to assist the candidate in their preparation by augmenting their knowledge of the fundamental skills needed to be a healthcare facility manager. The preparation course is representative of material on the exam but does not teach to the exam.

Through a combination of lecture, CHFM formatted practice test questions, and study materials, you will gain confidence in the five key competency areas of the CHFM exam. Learn what resources you need to review, and how to take a computer-based exam.

AHA CEUs: .70 or 7 contact hours
