About The Course

This course will examine how laundries operate in a Healthcare setting. 

The topics discussed will be relevant to the management of traditional in-house laundries as well as regional and central laundries which support multiple Healthcare institutions.

Time Commitment

Students can successfully progress through the program and complete it within the allotted time frame of six months. With the program being self-paced, there is no mandatory timeline for completing the deliverables.

We would estimate that 4-5 hours of study per week would be required. Please allow mentors a two week turnaround to grade your assignments, but you may still proceed to the next module.

Mentor Support
