Hire CPH

By hiring a professional with the Certified in Public Health credential, you are assuring your stakeholders and the public you serve that your staff is not only knowledgeable in the field, but committed to it. Search for CPH-credentialed staff through this search tool.

Why the CPH matters

As many public health workers are preparing to retire in the coming years, it is essential to ensure the quality of our new and current public health professionals. The Certified in Public Health (CPH) credential will help fill this skills-gap by demonstrating the credentialed professional’s mastery in all five core competencies of public health, plus the additional cross-cutting competencies. CPH professionals are also required to maintain the credential through continuing education and staying abreast of contemporary issues and best practices. Learn more about what others have to say about the CPH’s importance on our Testimonials Page.

Do you need to verify a credential?

To verify an individual's CPH status, visit our CPH verification page.

Thousands of public health professionals have chosen to become Certified in Public Health (CPH), which takes over where school leaves off. As more professionals are earning the credential, you don't want your students and graduates to fall behind. By helping inform your students about the CPH and supporting them in their pursuit of this credential, you will not only be assisting your graduates in their careers, but raising the standards of the public health field for all.
