Help Influence the Content of the CPPS Examination


The Certification Board for Professionals in Patient Safety is conducting a job analysis of professionals in patient safety. A job analysis helps to define performance domains and tasks performed by a professional and the necessary knowledge and skills associated with these tasks. The information gathered from the analysis will be used to develop a relevant and valid certification examination supported by evidence-based data.

In 2012 CBPPS developed a groundbreaking certification program designed to standardize patient safety competencies, provide a mechanism to ensure proficiencies essential for practicing professionals in the field, and elevate the profession by recognizing expertise in the discipline of patient safety. Since then, more than 600 patient safety practitioners have successfully completed the requirements of the program and are entitled to use the Certified Professional in Patient Safety (CPPS) credential.

You have a unique opportunity to influence the content of future certification examination forms. Please share your expertise by taking the job analysis survey:
