Recertification Requirements
 
The CPH recertification process is meant to foster life-long learning, professional development, and promotion of the public health profession. CPH recertification credits should focus on continuing education and professional development opportunities. Topics for CPH recertification credits must directly address at least one of the domain areas of the CPH exam.

All credits earned which are not offered by CPH pre-approved providers are subject to audit. Activities provided by pre-approved providers will earn credits as determined by the provider of CPH recertification activity. All other activities will earn CPH recertification credits per the recertification activity guidelines.
 
Schedule for Maintenance of Certification
To maintain certification, CPH professionals must earn 50 CPH recertification credits every two years starting with the first year the CPH is awarded. The certification process is on a two year cycle and must be recertified on alternate years by December 31 to ensure maintenance of certification. There is no carryover of recertification credits; credits reported must have been earned in the current recertification period. A renewal application fee of $95.00 will be due each recertification cycle.

CPH professionals will also be required to agree to and uphold the CPH Code of Ethics found at:
www.nbphe.org/codeofethics.cfm.
