HEALTHCARE ENGINEERING CERTIFICATION
HEALS promotes the Healthcare Engineering profession through certification of qualified Healthcare Engineering professionals. As one of the keys to career development, certification is a portable reflection of the fact that an individual has achieved a certain professional skill level. The HEALS Certification Program offers the following:
Formally acknowledging the expertise of a professional and recognizing his/her meeting the eligibility requirements of certification.
Providing an international standard of requisite knowledge for certification, thereby assisting employers, the public, and Healthcare community in assessing Healthcare Engineering professionals' qualification.
Certification renewal through continued personal and professional growth in the practice of Healthcare Engineering.
The HEALS certification programs are designed to meet the growing demand for Healthcare Engineering professionals by targeting the following two groups: (a) engineers and students from all engineering disciplines such as Biological, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, Industrial, Information, Materials, Mechanical, Software, and Systems Engineering, who are interested in serving the healthcare industry, and (b) healthcare professionals such as physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, allied health professionals, health scientists and students who are interested in extending their specialties to Healthcare Engineering.
Through the HEALS certification, an engineer or healthcare professional can:
expand career opportunities from Engineering to Healthcare or vice versa,
distinguish oneself in an increasingly competitive marketplace,
validate experience, skill, and knowledge in Healthcare Engineering,
demonstrate one's commitment to continuing professional development in Healthcare Engineering, and
gain knowledge, skills and tools in Healthcare Engineering to make a difference in the organization and community.
Distinguished advisory panels and faculty pool their expertise to create training programs that are practical, offering tools that directly relate to on-the-job needs. The certification process is developed by teams of both knowledgeable experts and those with a background in psychometrics to ensure that the certification process is valid and role-based. Examination items test at the application, synthesis and evaluation levels. Qualified individuals in Healthcare, Engineering, and other related areas such as Sciences and Business may register to take an exam.
