Classes begin June 15; qualified students pay only $195 for tuition and certification exam
North Florida Community College's Health Information Technology program is now accepting new student applications through Friday, May 1. The six-month online workforce development program offers student flexible hours while preparing them to assist in the implementation of Electronic Health Record (HER) systems. Classes are scheduled to begin Monday, June 15. As the health care industry transitions to electronic health records (EHRs), earning a Certified Healthcare Technology Specialist (CHTS) credential confirms that your experience and skills are ready to meet the nation's need for health information technology workers. NFCC's new Health Information Technology (HIT) program can help prepare you for the CHTS-PW exam. The Health Information Technology program will train students with in-demand skills, while preparing them to take the Certified Healthcare Technology Specialist (CHTS-Practice Workflow) exam. Students will be ready to help healthcare providers implement electronic health record systems to improve health care quality, safety and cost-effectiveness in our communities. A twenty-hour internship in a healthcare setting is required upon completion of course work. If necessary, students may be required to provide an up to date physical examination and immunizations at their own expense. Qualified students pay only $195 for course and certification exam, which is over a $1,000 savings. The Initial CHTS-PW testing fee is covered for students completing the program. All subsequent testing fees are the responsibility of the student. The deadline to apply is Friday, May 1 and classes begin Monday, June 15. For more information contact Jacqueline Y. Seabrooks, HIT Program Coordinator, at (850) 973-9478 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Angela Wilson, HIT Program Staff Assistant at (850) 973-9454 or email@example.com.
