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.
Each recertification cycle lasts two years, beginning January 1 of the year following your initial certification. The cycle ends on December 31 of the second year. Recertification will open in early July.
To ensure you receive recertification notifications, please update your contact information by accessing your account or calling our member services department at 847.375.4720.

- pay the associated fee of $100
