Healthcare Accreditation Certification Program (HACP)
Knowledge you need, Recognition you deserve!

HACP is the only program
of its kind that is:

  • Externally Validated

  • Peer Reviewed

  • Securely Administered

Sponsored by the Center for Improvement in Healthcare Quality
The Healthcare Accreditation Certification Program (HACP) is the only national professional credential solely dedicated to demonstrating competency in the CMS survey and certification process.

Why HACP is the Right Choice!

There are other well respected certification programs available to healthcare professionals – and we applaud their efforts to help us grow both personally and professionally.
What makes HACP different is its focus on the accreditation and certification arena. We’ve talked to hundreds of healthcare professionals who’ve told us how much of their job involves complying with standards and regulation. Yet other certification programs spend little or no time in this area.
