Unlike many certification programs, HACP is not about your title, or how many degrees you have after your name, or even what your job is. HACP is about proving your knowledge of accreditation standards and key CMS regulations.

There are no eligibility requirements. We do recommend that you be actively or recently employed in a hospital setting with at least two years experience. We’ve also found it helpful to have a good knowledge base of clinical and support processes in a hospital setting.
