Take your career to the next level by earning the Certified Patient Safety Officer (CPSO) credential.
This professional designation sets you apart in healthcare as a professional with specialized knowledge and competence in key areas at the heart of effective patient safety programs. The International Board for Certification of Safety Managers developed the CPSO credential in 2006 in order to recognize individuals who have demonstrated exceptional expertise in the area of patient safety.
Candidates for the CPSO exam must demonstrate their understanding of the concepts and principles vital to patient safety progress and innovation on the exam. Exam takers must meet specific experience requirements.
The self-study course curriculum is followed by a two-day class. Day one is comprised of instructor-led test prep. Day two is a half-day final review wrap-up followed by the exam, which is proctored by the instructor.
This is a two-part registration process. Please complete and send the application to the International Board for Certification of Safety Managers. Then fill out the registration form and send to LHA Trust Funds with payment.
Both the application and registration are required in order to take this course.
