    Default Comptia Healthcare IT Technician Bundle $125

    Just in case anyone else was on the fence about taking it. Comptia has the voucher, and the Element K student manual for $125.

    Great exam to have for IT professionals entering the healthcare IT space. Will be looking into it as we support physician offices with their technology.

    What’s the difference between a certification and a certificate? I noticed that that health care IT technician is a certificate exam. Also, like someone elsesaid is it a lifetime certificate?

    Well, I'm gonna give this a shot. I got my element k book on Wednesday, it's only like 220 pages (6 chapters). I'm a slow reader and I'm already on Chapter 3. Briefly flipping through the book it doesn't look like it will be too hard. From my understanding and the looks of it so far, it's basically A+, Network+, Security+ mixed in with a general healthcare understanding.

    Chapter 1 - Healthcare IT Fundamentals

    Chapter 2 - Medical Environment

    Chapter 3 - Using IT in the Medical Workplace

    Chapter 4 - Healthcare IT Technical Components

    Chapter 5 - Providing Medical IT Support

    Chapter 6 - Security

    This exam look like a good one form my research and easy to pass. Expectantly for someone with an A+, Network+ and security + and so actual IT experience. Then this exam shouldn't be much of a challenge. The only problem I have found with this exam is the lack of study material because of this exam being so new.

    For anyone think of taking it I would recommend using :
    CompTIA Healthcare IT Technician HIT-001 Authorized Cert Guide: CompTIA Healthcare IT Technician HIT-001 Authorized Cert Guide: Joy Dark, Jean Andrews: 9780789749291: Amazon.com: Books

    Out of what is actual able for this exam I found this book to be the best one. finding the learn curve to be very minor for this exam. It real Medical Business Operations, Organizational Behavior and Regulatory Requirements objective you need to focus on, with a possible quick review of the rested. Learn the medical terminology, the rested of the objective are really just reviews of security+, Network +and A+ days.


    Also to answer everyone question The COMPTIA HEALTHCARE IT EXAM is a for life certification.

    I'll do ya one better:

    VC22F304919 = 15% off vouchers @ comptiastore.com
    Brings this voucher down to $85.

    If you can't find $85 in value in this thing, its probably not meant for you anyway.

    That voucher code should work on pretty much every voucher option there for you

    CC22F735210 will get you 10% off study material @ the store also.

    Enjoy
