Key resources

The exam is largely based on compliance work experience and therefore an official study guide is not available for this exam. However, to help prepare for the CHRC examination, CCB recommends candidates:

     Review the CHRC Candidate Handbook and the “Detailed Content Outline.”

     Read HCCA's Compliance 101 book, The Health Care Compliance Professional's Manual, or 
        The Monitoring and Auditing Practices for Effective Compliance book. All can be ordered 
        from HCCA's website.

     Attend an HCCA Research Basic Compliance Academy. There you will receive a complimentary copy of 
        The Research Compliance Professional's Handbook, and have access to event materials. 
        Go to to register.

     Use the HCCAnet social network to ask questions and network with other healthcare 
        compliance professionals and CCB certification holders.

     Review reference materials and programs that are the basis for the “Detailed Content
        Outline,” such as the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. These programs and 
        reference materials are created by government agencies and groups that establish 
        policies and guidelines related to healthcare compliance and ethics, and groups 
        that regulate compliance and ethics issues. These include:

             Office for Human Research Protections

             Public Responsibility in Medicine and Research

             National Institutes of Health

             Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services-Medicare Clinical Trial Policies

             Office of Research Integrity

             Office of Civil Rights 

             U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General
