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.
To request supervisor access to the Directory:
Compose an email to the Directory (firstname.lastname@example.org) including the following information:
• First and Last name
• Direct work email address
• Facility/Site(s) name
• Facility/Site(s) address

The email must include your official organizational signature/logo to verify your supervisor/manager title.
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.
