What is a NAHTM / ITC Certified Healthcare Transporter (CHT)?
A Certified Healthcare Transporter is a hospital based, patient transporter who has achieved proficiency in all competencies outlined in the performance based, 3 book-course. Those 3 books are CHOICES: Ethics for the Workplace; Strategic Skill Building for Transporters; and Technical Skills Training for Transporters. The curriculum was developed by Impact Training Corporation (ITC) in partnership with NAHTM to establish a national certification and improve on-the-job performance.
What is a CHT Instructor?
A CHT Instructor has successfully completed the two-day CHT Instructor training. The typical CHT Instructor has a leadership role within, or over, a hospital-based transport department, or alternatively may be employed in human resources and/or the training department of a healthcare organization.
To attain the CHT Instructor credential, the candidate who attends the rigorous 2-day training course successfully learns the following: 1) in-depth knowledge of the contents of the 3- book curriculum; 2) methodologies to deliver the curriculum virtually or in person; 3) strategies to implement the program; and 4) how to best engage trainees. Two 3-hour virtual sessions each day, presented on Zoom platform, engage participants in multiple interactive activities and discussions.
Those who earn a CHT Instructor credential will be empowered to train healthcare transporters in the customized curriculum endorsed by NAHTM, and upon completion of the 3-book course, will make recommendations for national certification awards for their successful healthcare transporters to NAHTM.

I recently heard...and I quote this… from a Service Line Director when referring to the move to our expanded Pavilion Tower..."No other staff will transport my patients except my Nursing Staff and the (certified) Transporters." WOW...to know we are included within a select team is a win-win situation.

I recently participated in the Impact Level I Instructor Training at Ochsner Health System. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed being able to be a part of the training. Empowering others and helping them to realize their potential is something that I feel very passionate about. I am certain that your curriculum and the opportunity that it offers to Frontline Staff has already had a tremendous effect on the lives of many, and I am honored to have been chosen to be a part of this.

What Current Level I CHT Instructors are saying about the CHT Program
All good things! Those who have certified their healthcare patient transporters and other frontline employees in other key hospital disciplines are very much impressed with the difference in their performance and productivity. Many hospital leaders who have CHTs report that other leaders and executives in their respective organizations have also identified big improvements in job performance.
The CHT program offered through Impact Training Corp. has been a valuable resource for my organization. Our Certified Healthcare Transporters meet and exceed the quality and safety standards of facility, every patient, every time. They are widely recognized on our campus as the first contact for lifting and transferring assistance.
