Welcome to the 36th Annual AHCA Design and Construction Seminar, supported by the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) and hosted at the Orlando World Center Marriott, a world-class resort and convention center. Our theme this year is New Codes & Standards for Health Care Facilities.

This is the most important training event you can attend for the next four years, because on December 31, 2020, the State of Florida will begin enforcing all new Codes and Standards for health care facilities. This includes the 7th edition of the Florida Building Code, the 7th edition of the Florida Fire Prevention Code, and all three volumes of the 2018 edition of the FGI Guidelines.

AHCA Seminar Schedule and Registration:
This year the AHCA seminar opens on Wednesday afternoon, September 23, 2020 and ends on Friday afternoon, September 25, 2020, just in time for the weekend! (Click on the Schedule Tab for more information)

The AHCA Seminar registration fee includes entry to the FHEA Trade Show, a breakfast buffet, two lunches, two receptions and morning and afternoon snack breaks. You won’t want to miss Wednesday evening's AHCA Seminar reception following the afternoon sessions, and Thursday evening’s reception in the FHEA Trade Show. (Click on the Registration Tab to register for the AHCA Annual Seminar)

FGI Guidelines:
Members of the 2018 FGI Guidelines Revision Committee will be coming from across the United States to provide expert presentations specifically geared to your needs as design professionals, engineers, contractors, facility managers, and owners. The AHCA Seminar is the only place you will get information and interpretations about the FGI Guidelines directly from those who wrote them.

As special consideration for all AHCA Seminar attendees, we are excited to offer a special discounted price for the 2018 FGI Guidelines. During the registration process, you will be able to purchase any of the three volumes: Guidelines for Design and Construction of Hospitals 2018, Guidelines for Design and Construction of Outpatient Facilities 2018, and Guidelines for Design and Construction of Residential Health, Care and Support Facilities 2018 at the discounted price of $185.00 each including tax, handling, and shipping. (The Guidelines regularly sell for $225.00 each).

Remember, order these books when you are completing your online registration. By ordering your FGI Guidelines now, you will not only receive a substantial discount, they will be ready for convenient pickup at registration!

For an electronic version of the FGI Guidelines, use this link to purchase and have immediate access: fgi.madcad.com/
(Because this is a subscription service, no discount can be offered.)

AHCA Reviewers:
In addition, AHCA review architects and engineers from the AHCA Office of Plans and Construction, and Fire Protection Specialists from the AHCA Field Offices, will be attending and presenting to assist you in the approval of the design, construction, and maintenance of health care facilities in Florida.

There will be a special educational training track specifically geared towards contractors who construct and remodel health care facilities. CEUs will also be submitted for these courses.

Continuing Education Units for all educational sessions will be offered so you can maintain your certifications and licenses for architects, engineers, and contractors.
