HACP Client Feedback
“I am very happy to have finally attained my HACP Certification. I came into my current Accreditation Manager role at Cleveland Clinic Hillcrest Hospital about a year and a half ago. I have prepared and studied throughout that time period. The study guide and sample questions provided by CIHQ were extremely helpful in my preparation. The test itself, which I took electronically, was challenging yet easy to navigate. I had ample time to complete questions I knew and put additional thought into some of the more difficult questions. For any accreditation professionals out there, that are thinking about attaining their HACP - dive into all aspects of the study guide and talk with accreditation professionals that have previously taken the exam. The process sounds intimidating, but you should have no trouble passing with adequate preparation.”
