The CPPS examination is a computer-based test offered throughout the year at AMP Assessment Centers located domestically in the United States and internationally. The examination is administered by appointment only. Available dates will be indicated when you schedule your examination. Candidates are scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis. Candidates will be given two hours to complete the examination.
As part of regular exam maintenance, the Certification Board for Professionals in Patient Safety (CBPPS) released a revised exam on November 1, 2019. All exams going forward will be based on the revised content outline. The revised content outline can be viewed online. Candidates testing from November 1 – 15, 2019 will experience delayed scoring, followed by a testing blackout from November 16 - December 16. During this time responses from candidates to examination items will be reviewed, and CBPPS will reapprove the passing point for the examination. This process is a best practice for professional credentialing programs and helps maintain the integrity of the exam. We appreciate your understanding.
