The CMRP Current Certificant List, updated twice monthly, reflects all currently certified professionals.

The CMRP program includes the following elements:

  • Eligibility requirements that are a blend of education and healthcare-specific experience

This means that candidates who take the exam on or before August 11th will be tested on the current exam content outline, which can be found in the CMRP Candidate Handbook.
