CPHQ Review and Preparation

CPHQ Prep Virtual Study Group 

The FAHQ Professional Development Team (PDT) developed and hosted two virtual study groups in 2023 that were well received. We are now planning our next study group.  The CPHQ Virtual Study Group 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.  Our format will follow the 2023 CPHQ Content Outline.

Review Courses

The Oregon Association for Healthcare Quality, as part of the Healthcare Quality Collective, is offering a live virtual CPHQ Prep Course November 16-18, 2023.  Instructor will be Susan Mellott, PhD, RN, CPHQ, CPPS, FNAHQ.  More information will be posted here as plans finalized.

The National Association for Healthcare Quality (NAHQ) no longer licenses review course content to state quality associations, so FAHQ cannot directly offer a course to our membership.  However, NAHQ does have a wide variety of options for participating in one of their courses and accessing other NAHQ products to aid in your preparation.

Next NAHQ Live-Virtual CPHQ Review Course  is August 12 – 26, 2023.

To view other NAHQ resources for preparation, go to NAHQ CPHQ Preparation.

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.

Contact FAHQ CPHQ Team for questions, additional information, or to suggest other ways your association can help our members in preparing for the certification exam.  Want to be a mentor? Let us know at
