CHESP Renewal Process

The renewal cycle for the Certified Health care Environmental Services Professional (CHESP) credential is three (3) years, with expiration on the last day of the month in which the certification expires. Renewal may be achieved by completing eligible continuing education activities or retaking and passing the CHESP Examination. The issued CHESP certificate indicates the date certification was earned and expires. While the American Hospital Association Certification Center (AHA-CC) sends reminders about pending certification renewal, the certificate holder is fully responsible for keeping current the certification.

Renewals may be submitted to the AHA-CC up to one (1) year prior to the expiration date. For an additional nonrefundable fee of $50.00, certificate holders may submit a renewal up to 30 days past their expiration date.

Applications postmarked/faxed more than 30 days past the expiration date will not be accepted.

A certificant who fails to meet the provisions is no longer considered certified and must cease using the certification credential. Certification may be regained only through re-taking and passing the CHESP Examination.
