MECH Certification

MECH is a nationally recognized certification program for healthcare mechanics. Certified and Senior Certified mechanics are able to document their skills and gain professional recognition for their valuable work in the healthcare environment. Supervisors and facilities can use MECH Certification to improve their quality standards and demonstrate the value of their maintenance team.

Three times per year CSHE will offer the MECH exam to candidates wishing to receive their MECH certification. Tests are given at the CSHE Annual Institute (spring); the Southern California seminar (September); and the Northern California seminar (October).


If you have two years of experience working in healthcare maintenance, you can take the test and be MECH Certified. If you have four or more years of experience, and you achieve the required score on the test, you can be Senior MECH Certified. The test covers seven categories of healthcare maintenance work: Plumbing, Carpentry, Electrical, General Maintenance, HVAC/R Systems, Power Plant/Boiler, and Safety and Support Services. Successful test candidates will have a broad range of skills in all categories.

Your MECH Certification or Senior Certification is valid for five years from your test date. The technical training you pursue to keep up to date in your career will also qualify you to renew your MECH certification for another five years, without having to retest.
