  • Improve quality standards among your team
  • Identify training needs
  • Retain and reward valuable mechanics
  • Demonstrate value to your facility

Healthcare facilities receive:

  • Verification of employee skill for accreditation
  • Improved quality of patient care by encouraging ongoing education of in-house staff
  • Increased productivity and reductions in contracted service costs
  • A method for determining employment levels or pay incentives
  • A time saving hiring system when evaluating mechanics


In December of 1992, the Michigan Society for Healthcare Engineering (MiSHE) formed a subcommittee to explore a new way to recognize healthcare mechanics. Through the work of several MiSHE members, this recognition system was transformed into a certification program. Finally, an independant non-profit organization called MECH was formed to provide this certification to healthcare mechanics nationwide.

MECH Certification is pleased to announce that we are joining the American Society for Health Care Engineering (ASHE) suite of nationally recognized certifications, which includes the Certified Healthcare Facility Manager and Health Care Physical Environment Worker certifications.

Applicants seeking MECH Certification or recertification will be able to enroll online through the AHA Certification Center on December 6, 2022.


The MECH Board oversees the national objectives of MECH and is comprised of facilities managers and Senior Certified mechanics from healthcare facilities nationwide.
