Vendor Cert



This course is designed specially for healthcare vendors to provide a means to obtain information about the Central Service department's processes and the role of the vendor as it relates to this specialized area of the hospital. Whether you are just beginning to interact with the CS department or have been providing support to CS for several years, the information in this course is designed to help you gain a better insight into your customer's world.

Perhaps no one is more educated in your products and processes than you are. However, oftentimes your training about the CS department is focused directly on your product or service and how that interfaces with a specific area of CS. With that in mind, this course is designed to provide you with a broader picture of the CS environment and present you with information about the factors that influence protocols and purchasing decisions in Central Service.

We know you are busy, so we designed this course to fit into your schedule. It is an independent study course that you can work on when it's convenient for you. The combination of reading assignments and online presentations and quizzes makes it possible to complete the course from your office, your home, or even when you are traveling.
