Employer Access to the Directory
Employers or supervisors will need access to the Directory in order to verify HCA education, HCA information, competency status and employment information.
How to become a supervisor and/or manager on the Directory
To request employer, supervisor or manager access to the Directory please send an email to
email@example.com using your work email account. The email must include your official organizational signature/logo to verify your supervisor/manager title. The email should include the following:
• First and Last name of the supervisor
• Direct work email address
• Facility/Site(s) name

A request cannot be placed on behalf of another supervisor or manager. A separate request
must be placed by that supervisor with the Directory with the above-mentioned information.
