Maintaining your CHSOS-A Certification
The CHSOS-A certification initially assumes the same expiration date as your current CHSOS® certification. After this, each renewal is good for a three (3) year period of time. Recertification for CHSOS-A is done through submitting evidence of ongoing Continued Professional Development (CPD). Download the CHSOS-A Recertification Information (pdf) handbook for details. Acceptable CPD will be in education or simulation focused activities.
CPD includes a variety of activities such as (but not limited to):
- Participation in continuing education activities including conferences, webinars, or other education events
- Publishing journal articles, chapters, or books
- Presenting at educational events
