CPPS Review Course Webinar: April 12, 2018

The Certified Professional in Patient Safety (CPPS) Review Course is designed for experienced professionals planning to take the CPPS examination. This course can help participants prepare for the exam by reviewing domain content areas and test-taking strategies.

Individuals from across the health care spectrum may sit for the CPPS exam providing they possess a baseline combination of education, experience and a commitment to improving the practice of patient care. Candidates must meet the eligibility requirements to sit for the exam. Those who receive a passing score on the exam earn the CPPS certification.
