The American College of Healthcare Architects provides Board Certification for Architects who practice as healthcare specialists. Our certificate holders include healthcare architects throughout the United States and Canada with specialized skills and proven expertise.

Before earning the ACHA Board Certificate, healthcare architects must document their experience and demonstrate their skills through a computer-based examination. ACHA requires its Certificate Holders to work towards the improvement of healthcare architecture on behalf of the public, to practice in an ethical manner, to maintain high standards of specialized continuing education, and to add to the body of knowledge. If you, or someone you know, are qualified for the Board Certificate in Healthcare Architecture, the Regents invite submission of an application.

ACHA Services
Healthcare organizations can access our free Certificate Holder Directory, to learn the names and qualifications of those architects who have attained ACHA Certification. ACHA Educational opportunities include our online Resource Center and various educational workshops. All of these educational resources are accessible through this website and we encourage you to use them often.
