Certified Joint Commission Professional® (CJCP®) program is changing exam vendors in 2020. When the new vendor is in place, you may register for the test. Unfortunately, the vendor transition will not be in place for several months. Even though the testing process is on pause, the CJCP program is not going away!
What do you need to do?
Please continue to review the CJCP section, in the JCR Website, which is the spot where the exam vendor and any ongoing CJCP updates will be announced.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. However, we believe that the new exam vendor will offer a better test experience and application process.
You may continue to recertify until December 31, 2019 through PSI. Starting @01/07/2019, you will be able to recertify by a new process. This process will be posted in the near future (prior to the end of December 2019), within the CJCP section of the JCR Website.
If you have any questions about the CJCP examination, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
