Each year, CCHP-As must recertify their CCHP or specialty certification with the CCHP Board of Trustees and provide evidence of 18 hours continuing education, at least 6 of which must be in the field of correctional health care.
Every three years, CCHP-As must submit documentation of participation in at least one correctional health care conference, as well as completion of an advanced project, such as publishing an article or book, teaching or presenting at a correctional health care conference, receiving a national recognition or developing a project that has significant impact on the field of correctional health care.
Recertification requirements must be completed prior to the expiration date. Requests for an extension (up to 30 days) must be submitted in writing (by email, mail or fax).
CCHP-A certification may be reinstated within one year upon submission of the required elements and an administrative reinstatement fee. If certification has lapsed for more than one year, you must submit a new application and complete all of the application requirements.
