Why seek a PCRA/ICRA Credential?
There are many reasons for pursuing a PCRA/ICRA credential for healthcare construction that can benefit your company. Here are some of them:
Quality: PCRA/ICRA teams are formally assessed and trained to meet exacting standards for construction and maintenance services in healthcare facilities, reducing the risk of potentially costly errors.
Cost-saving: A PCRA/ICRA team can typically complete projects faster, with fewer costly mistakes, than a non-credentialed team, reducing input costs and increasing facility efficiency.
Compliance: PCRA/ICRA-qualified teams are trained and credentialed to ensure compliance with applicable state-of-the-art requirements for healthcare construction and maintenance services.
Safety: PCRA/ICRA teams are specially trained to provide construction and maintenance services in a safe and healthy environment and protect patients, staff, and visitors from harm.
Experience: PCRA/ICRA trained and credentialed teams are prepared to work within healthcare settings and represent The Joint Commission standards of excellence for safety and compliance.
User-friendly: The PCRA/ICRA credential is designed for both entry-level and supervisory construction and maintenance personnel. It features a self-paced online 12-hour training, remotely proctored exam with a credential that is valid for 5 years. There is no education or experience requirement so as a quality assurance measure you can prefer or require a greater percentage of workers to have the credential.
