Continuing your CHIA journey

How to keep and maintain your CHIA credentials

Maintaining the currency of your health informatics knowledge and experience in such a dynamic field is as important as gaining it in the first place. Accordingly, the CHIA credential is valid for 3 years after which it is either renewed or lapses.

You can renew your CHIA credential by undertaking continuing professional development (CPD) activities throughout the 3-year period and earning 60 CPD points. You also need to pay the recertification fee. If you don’t accumulate enough CPD points, you can take the examination again for the same fee.

You have already done all the hard work; don’t let your success be short-lived!

You can also recertify by retaking the CHIA examination for the same fee.

Recertification update

As of 2024, you will no longer be required to have a minimum of 30 CPD points (50%) from AIDH or HIMAA.

When submitting your CPD journal, your 60+ CPD points can be accrued from any educational provider. These changes have been reflected in the Recertification and CPD Guide and CHIA CPD Journal below. This change was made in response to feedback from our CHIA Alumni who wanted the ability to earn CPD from more providers. You are still required to meet all other criteria as outlined in the Recertification Guide. Any queries can be directed to [email protected].

Earning CPD points

There are many ways to earn CHIA CPD points. These include:

  • Participating in events and conferences
  • Participating in academic and vocational education
  • Delivering presentations
  • Publication, research or developing content
  • Professional service
  • Writing questions for the CHIA Examination
  • Reviewing publications
  • Reading articles, journals and watching videos on Digital Health TV

The Recertification and CPD Guide contains more details on all aspects of renewing your CHIA credential.

Recording and reporting CPD activities

You can renew your CHIA credential by earning 60 CPD points during the 3-year recertification period. Identifying and planning your CPD activities at the start of this period can help ensure you achieve your goals.

The CHIA CPD Journal is a useful tool to record your CPD activities and track your progress. This is submitted as evidence by emailing it to [email protected] at the time of renewal.
