Recertifying Your CPHQ

The CPHQ validates your knowledge of healthcare quality and demonstrates your dedication to the field. As the profession of healthcare quality rapidly changes, it is vital that you maintain the skills and credibility gained through the CPHQ by recertifying the credential.

The Recertification Handbook outlines requirements, ways to earn continuing education (CE), audit procedures, and the Retired status, and should be read before applying for recertification.
