CPH Content Outline


The National Board of Public Health Examiners conducted a job task analysis (JTA) in 2016 to validate the knowledge tested by the CPH examination. A JTA is a carefully constructed survey used to determine the body of knowledge that a segment of a profession’s workforce needs to know to competently perform their jobs, and typically, a JTA is the basis for developing a credentialing examination.
