Certified Joint Commission Professional (CJCP) program will be changing exam testing vendor in January 2020. We will keep you up to date as decisions are finalized. Our intent is to make this transition as smooth as possible for our current and future CJCP candidates.
What do you need to do?
Candidates scheduled to take their exams in 2019 should continue as planned. The transition to the new vendor will not affect your pending exam.
Candidates who have already completed the application process and are planning to take the exam in 2020, please do NOT register for the exam until the transition has been completed. We anticipate completing the transition to the new vendor by December 2019.
Candidates who have not yet applied, we ask that you wait until further notice to begin the application process with the new vendor.
We believe that this transition will provide a better exam experience and application process.
If you have any questions about the CJCP examination, please contact us at email@example.com.
