All Learning Exchange Modules must be completed before competency check- off.  Proof of completion with paper certificate/ or electronic version is required.  Modules can be found in the Learning Exchange.  All modules start with “POC” to minimize search results.

Point-of-Care Testing (POCT) certification is an annual requirement for staff who work in clinical areas approved by the Medical Director of Laboratories to perform testing. Particular staff roles (RN, LPN, etc) must also be approved to perform POCT. If you are unsure as to whether your role and/or unit has been approved to perform POCT, please contact your supervisor.

This is not training. You must have had initial orientation for this testing. It is a time for you to show your proficiency.
