CCI administers programs to demonstrate the specialized knowledge and skills necessary for various cardiovascular specialties.

The decision to earn a credential is an important step in one’s professional career. It demonstrates not only fundamental knowledge but also your dedication to your professional development. Healthcare professionals choose to certify for personal challenge and self-improvement, to improve salary and advancement opportunities, to demonstrate skills, knowledge, and abilities to patients and physicians, and to distinguish themselves through a commitment to lifelong learning and career growth.

Healthcare bodies and facilities value credentialed employees because it is a way to recruit and retain good healthcare practitioners demonstrates that healthcare practitioners have met standard requirements, and there is growing evidence linking certification and positive outcomes.

To earn a CCI credential you must meet the following requirements: fulfill the minimum level of education, document the required clinical experience for the specialty, and submit an application including documentation of exam volume. Upon approval of the application, you will be notified, and a test center will be assigned. Tests are available only during specific times.
