Examination to take when you are ready (within your allocated 90 days as advised in your welcome email).

Please make sure to download the Handbook and the Study Guide since it won’t be accessible once your examination expires.

Optional Resources

As an alternative to the provided Study Guide, you can choose to purchase A Practitioner’s Guide to Health Informatics in Australia, authored by David Rowlands, is a comprehensive body of knowledge (600+ pages) providing an understanding of the 53 competencies in the Australian Health Informatics Competency Framework (AHICF) tested in the CHIA examination. The Practitioner’s Guide to Health Informatics in Australia is independently authored and acts as a companion guide to the CHIA program but is not a reflection of the CHIA examination.
