About online CHFSP training and course work
Online training has the same certification requirements as in-person training. It’s approximately an six-hour day, delivered from morning until afternoon with a brief break for lunch. The virtual proctored exam can then be scheduled by the attendee.
For many professionals working in medical practices or healthcare organizations, your ability to absorb and retain healthcare emergency concepts depends on your ability to focus on the course through the day. Life safety training and emergency management professionals can guarantee success by reducing distractions, meetings, calls, and interruptions while participating in the online course, just as you would in-person.
Certified healthcare fire safety professional is a standalone designation
The Certified Healthcare Fire Safety Professional (CHFSP) Designation is a stand-alone credential. Upon passing the CHFSP examination, the certified member becomes CHFSP credentialed by the International Board for Certification of Safety Managers (IBFCSM).
