The CPH exam acts as a standard benchmark to measure an individual’s grasp of contemporary public health topics, which is needed as schools and programs have various graduation requirements. The recertification process elevates public health professionals to be on par with other health professions’ maintenance of their licenses, certifications, or credentials. The CPH code of ethics, which all CPH professionals must agree to uphold, assures that essential services are delivered based on evidence and equity.
The inaugural CPH exam was offered across the world in August 2008. To date, more than 4,500 individuals have passed the CPH exam. Join us in raising the bar for public health. Get CPH Certified!
To maintain certification, CPH professionals must earn and report 50 CPH recertification credits every two years starting with the first year the CPH is awarded. Click here for more information.
