FAQs about the exam process are below. If you have any remaining questions, see our candidate handbook or email info@nbphe.org.

What are the three eligibility criteria to sit for the CPH exam?

The CPH exam is offered to:

  • Graduate students of CEPH-accredited schools and programs.   Based on its implementation of coursework relevant to the CEPH foundational competencies, each CEPH-accredited graduate school or program will identify when its students are eligible to take the examination for certification in public health. Candidates who pass the exam under this eligibility criteria will be provisionally certified until graduation. Following confirmation of their graduation, they will be Certified in Public Health.

 

  • Alumni of CEPH-accredited schools and programs of public health who have completed all degree requirements for a Masters or Doctoral level degree.

 

  • Individuals who have at least a bachelor’s degree, in any concentration, and at least five subsequent years’ public health work experience, verified by transcripts, resume and employment verification, may be eligible to take the CPH exam. Applications will be reviewed based on public health work experience, indicating the scope of foundational knowledge that has been acquired based on the ten essential public health services.
My school was accredited after I graduated, can I still take the exam?

You can take the exam if you graduated up to three years before the CEPH–accreditation date of your school or program. (Example: University of Alabama at Birmingham was accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health [CEPH] in 1978. If you graduated in 1975 or thereafter, you are eligible to take the exam.) The Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) is an independent agency which accredits schools of public health and public health programs offered in settings other than schools of public health.

The program or school from which I graduated is no longer accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), but it was CEPH-accredited when I graduated. Am I eligible for the CPH examination?

Yes, you are eligible, as long as your graduation occurred within the time period of CEPH-accreditation, or up to three years before the award of accreditation. The NBPHE will contact CEPH to confirm an entity’s accreditation date. Note also that NBPHE routinely verifies the graduation status of all examinees with the registrar of the public health school or program. It will be your responsibility to ensure that the records documenting your graduation during the appropriate time period are available for verification.

What is the process for verifying eligibility?

If you apply as a graduate student or alumni of a CEPH-accredited school or program of public health, your school or program of public health will be notified to log into our portal and verify your education to sit for the CPH exam.

Individuals applying with public health work experience will undergo a review process, where your application is reviewed and past employment and education are both verified.

How do I register for the exam?

All candidates must apply through our CPH Registration & Verification portal. Learn more and apply now!

How do I schedule my exam once my eligibility has been verified?

Once your eligibility has been verified, you will receive an email from PSI/AMP with instructions for how to schedule your exam. If you do not receive an email but your status is “Eligible”, please contact us.

What about candidates with disabilities / requesting a special accommodation?

The NBPHE is committed to ensuring that no individual with a disability is deprived of the opportunity to take the examination solely by reason of that disability. AMP testing facilities will provide reasonable accommodations for candidates with disabilities.

  1. Wheelchair access is available at all established Assessment Centers. Candidates must advise AMP at the time of registration that wheelchair access is necessary.
  2. Candidates with visual, sensory or physical disabilities that would prevent them from taking the examination under standard conditions or candidates who request special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act must fill out the two forms for ADA accommodations within the CPH Candidate Handbook. E-mail the two forms 45 days prior to your desired testing date to e-mail amp-info@goamp.com with cc: info@nbphe.org
How do I update my email or mailing address?

Can I reschedule my exam?

To reschedule your exam after your first free reschedule, you must wait for your scheduled date to pass. After your exam date passes, log into the CPH Registration & Verification portal, and if we have confirmed you were absent on the exam date, you will see an option to sign up/pay to retake (see Exam Fees section for explanation of fees). Once you pay, you will receive scheduling instructions from PSI via email.

What are the exam fees?

Standard registration – $385. For a list of available discounts see: https://www.nbphe.org/cph-fees-discounts/

Can members of the U.S. Armed Forces use Military Tuition Assistance benefits for the CPH exam fee?

Yes, active duty members of the U.S. Armed Services may be able to use benefits of the Military Tuition Assistance Program to pay for the CPH examination fee.  More information can be found at: http://www.militaryonesource.mil/voluntary-education?content_id=268274 or call 800-342-9647.

Is the registration fee refundable?

The registration fee is NOT refundable, but it is deferrable.

Can I use veterans' benefits for the CPH exam?

Yes. As of November 2009, NBPHE is approved to offer the CPH exam through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans, their eligible dependents, and reservists may qualify for reimbursement of the CPH exam costs through their veteran’s education benefits. For more information, please contact the Veterans Benefits Administration office in your area or visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Education Benefits website at: http://www.gibill.va.gov.

What can I expect during the exam?

See our CPH candidate handbook for more details about the scheduling and examination process.

Can I retake the CPH exam?

After you have taken your exam (or if you were absent on your scheduled exam date) you may reapply online via the CPH Registration & Verification Portal. The retake fee is $150. Once paid, you will receive an email from PSI with scheduling instructions.

My score report says that I’m “Provisionally Certified.” What does that mean?

Candidate who take the exam under the student eligibility criteria are not fully certified until they have completed their degree. The CPH status for these student candidates is pending until after your academic institution verifies with the NBPHE that you have completed all requirements for graduation. This will happen electronically between your academic institution and NBPHE. Then you will automatically receive a certificate recognizing your accomplishment and your CPH status will be active.

Will anyone else see my score?

Student and alumni scores are only shared with the academic institution which conferred or will confer candidates’ degree. All Certified in Public Health examinees in good standing are listed on the NBPHE website.

 

What is the passing score needed to pass the exam?

Because the CPH exam is updated every year and the cut score needed to pass the exam changes with each new exam form, a standard passing score is not published.  However, passing rates are available.  Between 2012 and 2018, over 75% of candidates pass the exam.  (Please note: The score needed to pass was NOT 75%)

When is the CPH exam held?
