NARHC’s Certified RHC Professional (CRHCP)
When Available: Dec. 1, 2017 with an in-person exam in San Antonio Mar. 18. Requires concurrent attendance & separate registration for the 2018 NARHC Spring Institute (March 19-21, 2018). CLICK HERE for conference info.
Enrollment Period: Dec. 1-Feb 1, limited to the first 50 people paid. Coursework must be completed by March 15, 2018. Course will be offered only once a year.
Cost: NARHC Member $450, Non-Member $600 (the $100 Exam Fee is included). Registration for the NARHC Spring Institute is extra. NOTE: if you want to register in Dec. but your RHC’s membership doesn’t become effective until Jan, call us 866-306-1961.
Course Format: ON-LINE, except Final Exam, which must be taken in San Antonio on Sunday, March 18, 2018, 3-5 pm
How Long Will It Take: Approx. 30 hours and may take up to 6 weeks to accomplish. Those with no prior experience may need 8 weeks! So sign up early.
Content: There are 4 modules (Admin & Finance, Billing & Coding, Human Resources, & Regulatory Compliance & Quality), which must be accomplished in that order. Each subset will have pre-test questions at the end which must be answered correctly before you can move on to the next section. Each section has optional videos.
Pre-requisites: None. However, registration & attendance at the 2018 NARHC Spring Institute is a requirement for the certification (this is part of your learning experience). This course is written at the basic level and should be considered the starting point or the minimum you need to know to be a Certified RHC Professional.
Final Exam: The exam will be held at the Hyatt Regency Riverwalk in San Antonio on Sun., March 18, 3-5 p.m. This is the day before the NARHC Spring Institute. Bring proof of ID & a laptop for the final test (a tablet or phone is NOT recommended)! If you can’t take the pre-tests on your device, you won’t be able to take the final test either. If you don’t have a laptop, a certain percentage of paper tests will be available. Those who take the test on a laptop will know immediately if they’ve passed. Certificates will be emailed within 30 days to those who have passed.
What if I don’t Pass the Exam: 1 free test re-take will be allowed within the first 90 days (on-line).
Recertification: Every 2 years, 16 CEUs will be required for certification. Must attend at least 1 NARHC conference every other year (worth the 15 CEUs). In the “off” year, it is suggested you take a Free NARHC T.A. Webinar to obtain 1 CEU. If all 4 conferences are missed (F18, S19, F19, S20), certification will lapse. Coursework & exam must then be repurchased.
