To purchase an exam:
Under the new Advanced CPAR program established in 2016, you must successfully pass three out of the five specialty exams. The Advanced CPAR specialty exams will be a more in depth study of the CPAR material. You may select any of the three sections. Advanced CPAR study material and testing schedules will be available after July 2016.
Anyone who obtained their CPAR certification prior to 2015 and is already in the process of obtaining Advanced CPAR status by attending education events have through the end of 2016 to complete the requirements. Classes and sessions will be communicated soon.
Anyone who obtained their CPAR certification in 2015 will need to obtain their Advanced CPAR certification by passing three of the five above Specialty sections within three years of taking the first Advanced Specialty exam.
Both the CPAR and Advance CPAR exams are administered through this website so you can use the same “account or profile” to schedule your exams. However, you cannot take both exams on the same day.
Manuals and study guides
Manuals and study guides are provided as part of your registration fee. They are not available separately. When you purchase a Manual you will be able to download the associated manual in the Schedule Exams section once you have logged into your account. If you only want the manual then you can simply bypass scheduling the exam and download the manual.
Study information will be available in June
In June each year the website will be updated to allow students to purchase Manuals for that year ONLY. Once you have purchased the Manual you will be able to schedule An exam available from August through November. The purchase price also includes access to the downloadable study information for each certification. The exam fees for each certification program are set annually by Georgia HFMA’s Board of Directors through the budgeting process. Students who do not pass the exam may pay to re-test during that same year. Re-testing fees do not carry over to future calendar years.
