CPHQ Review and Preparation

CPHQ Prep Virtual Study Group 

The FAHQ Professional Development Team (PDT) presents the second Fall 2022 CPHQ Virtual Study Group, led by subject matter experts and providing participants with an interactive space to learn about best practices and content important to our FAHQ members who are preparing for CPHQ Certification.

We have a new name, the CPHQ Prep Virtual Study Group, to more clearly define our purpose in supporting your study on you way to take the CPHQ exam.  It is not a prep course but will provide exam candidates access to additional resources as they prepare.

The Fall 2022 CPHQ Virtual Study Group will consist of five 1-hour sessions scheduled every week over a five-week period beginning October 5, 2022. Each session will be led by a CPHQ-certified moderator as well as other CPHQ-certified subject matter experts who will share their knowledge of the exam content outline, preparation tips, and effective use of additional resources

These sessions are intended to provide what YOU need, so participants will be encouraged to submit questions on content to be covered.  Registrants may submit at any time during the workgroup schedule using email.  Moderators will address emailed questions and will also open each session to additional questions and discussion with attendees.

CPHQ Prep Mentoring (FAHQ Members Only)

FAHQ offers mentoring by a currently certified CPHQ to assist our members in their preparation for the examination.  The mentor/mentee relationship is established after an initial assessment of the FAHQ member’s study needs.  If you are already in a study group at your workplace or virtually, FAHQ will consider assigning a mentor to the group.

Please review the Mentorship Guidelines and Mentoring Agreement and  for a better understanding of requirements.  Then contact the FAHQ Professional Development Team to request a mentor for CPHQ Prep.
