Effective Jan. 1: CJCPs® can earn up to 10 hours of CE credits without prior approval

Added on November 3, 2017 in General News

Beginning Jan. 1, 2018, Certified Joint Commission Professionals™ (CJCP®) can earn up to 10 hours of continuing education credits for triennial recertification through non-Joint Commission Resources (JCR) and/or Joint Commission events without obtaining prior approval from JCR. This change is based on review and input from CJCPs, as well as the CJCP Steering Committee.

CJCPs must still earn a total 30 CJCP credit hours over each three-year period of their certification to remain certified, including 20 credit hours through attending JCR- and/or Joint Commission-approved events.

Options to meet CJCP recertification eligibility include:

  • A minimum of 20 credit hours earned through JCR and/or Joint Commission programs, including:
    • JCR live education or face-to-face learning
    • Custom education
    • Web-based training
    • JCRQSN broadcasts
    • CJCP-approved events hosted by The Joint Commission
  • Up to 10 credit hours earned through other programs and events providing education and content of the education that meets CJCP certification goals and supports the ongoing education of an accreditation manager. Topics include:
    • Leadership
    • Communication
    • Patient safety
    • Joint Commission survey process
    • Joint Commission standards
    • National Patient Safety Goals

The CJCP certification recognizes health care professionals’ specialized knowledge and skills to help their organizations achieve quality and safety goals, prepared to work with staff to achieve continuous standards compliance and demonstrate commitment to quality.
