CHT Exam Information


Next steps in earning your Certified Healthcare Trustee Certificate

The Certified Healthcare Trustee Program is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to governance effectiveness to your board, your hospital and your community. It always provides a mechanism to stay informed in this rapidly changing health care environment.

In order to become a CHT, we first invite you to take the CHT Exam – a short knowledge assessment that tests your understanding of governance best practices and areas of board oversight. The Exam comprises 20 questions and should not take more than 30 minutes of your time and there is an exam fee of $125.

To take the CHT exam, submit payment via check, online, or ACH payment. Once received, a link to the online exam will be sent to you via email. You will have three opportunities to take and pass the exam with a score of 70% or higher.

The CHT Study Guide is available on our online store to help prepare for the exam.
