Why be certified?

A certification designation demonstrates to potential clients, vendors, and others that the holder has met certain standards of experience and knowledge.

Unlike other certifications, such as CPA (Certified Public Accountant), a CHBC (Certified Healthcare Business Consultant) has demonstrated an understanding of the total healthcare business environment- both practice and financial management.

Certification programs are voluntary efforts taken within a specific industry to establish standards of performance. They are regulated by independent organizations, as contrasted with licensing, which is government-administered.

The Certification Examination, covering the body of knowledge reviewed in the Certification Course, consists exclusively of multiple-choice questions and contains scenarios with related questions, applicable both to medical and dental practices. The questions have been developed to examine the knowledge and application of principles.
