CompTIA Offers Health IT Certification

Susan Hall

Nonprofit IT trade association CompTIA has created a certification for IT professionals who complete training on how to install, manage and troubleshoot equipment and software for electronic health record platforms, eWeek reports.


The Healthcare IT Technician certification is designed to provide the specific operational, regulatory and security knowledge that health care organizations are looking for. It closely maps two job roles for skilled health IT specialists identified by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT: implementation support specialists and technical and software support staff.


The organization recommends that interested candidates also have completed CompTIA A+ or 500 hours of hands-on experience in health care IT.
