Validate your knowledge of working in a health care environment!

You will gain an understanding of the latest compliance issues in health care construction, and learn what owners, staff, and patients expect of constructors working in the health care environment. Earn 17.5 CEC’s (equivalent to 17.5 contact hours)!
