MECH Certification and Senior MECH Certification

MECH Certification is awarded to mechanics with at least two years of experience in patient care facilities who pass the MECH test. Senior MECH Certification is awarded to healthcare mechanics with four or more years of experience who pass the MECH test at or above the required score. Both are valid for five years from the test date and can be renewed by following the Recertification process.

The MECH test is a multiple-choice written exam with a two-hour time limit. The test covers the following categories of healthcare maintenance work:

  • Plumbing
  • Carpentry
  • Electrical
  • General Maintenance
  • HVAC/R Systems
  • Power Plant/Boiler
  • Safety and Support Services

Those with specialized skills in a particular category are advised to work toward expanding their knowledge base before testing. All test candidates receive the Test Preparation Workbook with their application, which includes a skills checklist and practice test to help them prepare.
