cHAP (Certified Healthcare Administrative Professional)

The Certified Healthcare Administrative Professional (cHAP) certification provides a measure of proficiency for administrative professionals who work within healthcare organizations. cHAP designees are recognized as having superior skills, knowledge and experience within the field of healthcare administration.
