Recertification is an integral part of the Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality® (CPHQ) program, allowing certified individuals to demonstrate continued expertise in the field through continuous professional development. 

As we continue to evolve the recertification process, our goal at NAHQ is to make it a clear, well-defined process and adding value to CPHQs.  

If you are due to recertify your CPHQ after December 31, 2022 or you are planning to take the exam in 2022 the recertification requirements have changed.  

There are 2 additional requirements that will be added: 

  • You will be required to complete the NAHQ Professional Assessment at least once during your recertification cycle. The Professional Assessment is free to all CPHQs and 2 Continuing Education Units (CEs) will be awarded for completing it. More information on the Professional Assessment can be found here.
  • While 30 CEs are still required to complete recertification, it is now required that 8 of your 30 CEs are NAHQ-approved* CE activities.  

*A NAHQ-approved activity is defined as an activity that has been approved by NAHQ through the CPHQ CE Approval Program

As a reminder, if you are a NAHQ member all of your continuing education requirements are offered through your membership. Interested in becoming a NAHQ member? Join now!
