KSHE Update
  
Greetings from the HFL program at OCTC!
 
It is hard to believe that the HFL program will be turning five in a couple of months. With each passing semester newly minted credentials, growing program offerings, and student success stories are growing as the program matures. I would like to share a little bit on each.
Greetings healthcare engineering professionals!
 
It was great to see many of you at the Healthcare Coalition Conference in Owensboro! I believe you will agree that we had excellent education offerings this year that covered relevant issues. Our tool belt training sessions were all at capacity! We also had some excellent weather! With just a couple of months left in the year, we still have some exciting education goals and opportunities coming up.

The orientation of technicians, outside vendors and contractors in healthcare is not only a safety issue, it is required for accreditation with organizations such as The Joint Commission.
