During this national emergency, many conferences have been cancelled, including those where the CCHP exam has been scheduled. NCCHC shares your disappointment and acknowledges the many hours of preparation that you may have already completed.

We will be working closely with conference organizers to reschedule the exams as soon as possible. In addition, PSI Test Centers with local locations around the country are a convenient option. Please confirm with PSI that your preferred test center is open.
