PICC Excellence™ is proud to offer our PICC Certification™ Program. This program is intended to provide the vascular access clinician validation of a higher level of knowledge and practice in the field of PICC placement. PICC Certification™ is intended to be recognized throughout the healthcare community. Certification is a process by which an association grants recognition to an individual who has met predetermined standards specified by that association or agency. PICC Certification™ does NOT verify competency. Rather, PICC Excellence™ is certifying that the candidate has met specific standards of knowledge and training specific to PICCs as a credentialing process.
