How to maintain your CPHIMS-CA certification

You worked hard to achieve your CPHIMS-CA credential – keep it current with ongoing professional engagement. Certified professionals need to accumulate a total of 60 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) before their credential expiration date. If you allow your credential to expire without accumulating the required CEUs, you must write and successfully pass the CPHIMS and CA exams again in order to be re-certified.
