Training Offering Overview

Training Name: Hospital Basic Training Part 2 (HBT-Part2)


Training Description: Due to the size and complexity of the course, as well as the need for a new surveyor to be mentored with an experienced preceptor during actual surveys, the Hospital Basic Training online course is divided into two parts. Hospital surveyor candidates must complete both Part 1 and Part 2.

Together, this two-part online course is designed to provide surveyors with the basic knowledge and skills needed to survey hospitals for compliance with the Medicare Hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs).

Learners must have successfully completed the Hospital Basic Training, Part 1 component of the online course prior to being enrolled in the Hospital Basic Training, Part 2 component of the online course.

The estimated course completion time for this training is 31 hours.
