The role of a HIPAA Privacy Officer is to ensure that an organization complies with HIPAA regulations and that patient information is safeguarded. The Privacy Officer is also responsible for developing and implementing HIPAA policies and procedures. They must also make sure that employees receive training on HIPAA regulations, and the importance of safeguarding patient information.

As far as HIPAA credentials go, a Certified HIPAA Privacy Security Expert (CHPSE) is the benchmark. It is the highest level certification available for members of the core HIPAA compliance team. The CHPSE program gives Officers thorough and in-depth HIPAA training as well as processes to follow for implementing HIPAA compliance. This certification course has no prerequisites, so you can jump right in without completing any other courses.

What is the CHPSE Certification?

To become a Certified HIPAA Privacy Security Expert (CHPSE), you must successfully complete an 81-question test (3 questions per chapter, with a maximum of 5 minutes for each chapter to respond to the questions). 

The test proceeds as follows:

  • You have two hours and ten minutes allotted for this test. 
  • You have five minutes in every chapter to respond to three questions. 
  • You cannot stop the test once it has begun. 
  • The test is accessible at any time and from any location, and doesn’t need to be scheduled. 

Within one month of becoming certified, all professionals are required to complete cybersecurity awareness training. This course is available both before and after certification. If you are a cybersecurity specialist, you can ask for an exception to take the training, but you still have to pass the test.
