    Certified Professional in Healthcare Risk Management (CPHRM)

    Administered by the American Hospital Association, the Certified Professional in Healthcare Risk Management (CPHRM) is the healthcare industry’s premier certification for the risk management profession. The American Hospital Association’s Certification Center determines eligibility requirements, exam content, testing procedures and other aspects of the certification, and oversees the examination process.

    Audience
    Eligible ASHRM members interested in preparing for the CPHRM Certification exam can do so through the CPHRM Examination Preparation Course, a review course available as a online series or a face-to-face program.

    Description
    The CPHRM Exam Prep course is designed to help prepare eligible risk management professionals take the exam. While the course is not designed to teach foundational concepts, it can help participants focus on content areas that may require a more in-depth review, as well as identify familiar content areas for which a more cursory review will suffice. The agenda for the course corresponds to the five major content areas of the CPHRM Exam detailed in the CPHRM Candidate Handbook and Application (PDF).

    CPHRM Exam Preparation Guide
    Need an additional resource to help you study for the exam? This guide includes a number of useful features applicable to each of the five domains tested on the exam: learning objectives, key terms, outline and review questions (which include answers as well as the rationale for answers), and ASHRM resources and other suggestions for additional study.

    Exam Registration Confirmation

    • Candidates are not registered for an exam until they have received their confirmation letter from AMP.
    • AMP (not the AHA Certification Center) sends confirmation of receipt of the exam application via mail and e-mail to the address provided on the exam application. If you do not receive a confirmation from AMP, please call 1.888.519.9901 or write info@goAMP.com.

    Day of the Exam

    • Only candidates who received an exam confirmation from AMP will be allowed to test.
    • Candidates must be on time. Late arrivals will not be allowed to test.
    • Candidates must bring two forms of identification and their confirmation letter. More information about the exam administration process is available in the CPHRM Candidate Handbook.
