CJCP® Exam Preparation

Preparing for the Examination

To prepare for the CJCP examination, candidates should be familiar with the Comprehensive Accreditation Manual for Hospitals (CAMH). We recommend that you not only know the standards, but understand the intent behind them. Studying chapter introductions of the CAMH, introductions to specific standards, and the rationales for standards can help candidates clarify the intents behind certain standards. Other helpful resources include the standard FAQs on The Joint Commission web site, reading Perspectives, as well as considering the 9 education modules/webinars that JCR has available.

Exam Schedule


CJCP exams will be offered quarterly at a location convenient to you. Once your application is processed and deemed complete, you will be notified of further instructions to begin scheduling your exam time. Candidates have one year from the time of application to take the exam.
