The HET Difference:

There are a lot of compliance courses that go over the same material without telling you how to use this information to improve your program. Your leadership wants to know how the compliance program contributes to the organization and how your program compares to what others are doing. This course teaches the elements of a compliance program in terms of how you can use them to increase overall organizational effectiveness. Best practices for all program elements are presented.

Certification & Continuing Education

The Compliance Certification Intensive Course provides innovative education while meeting all of the educational requirements to receive or renew the CCP or CCE credential. The Compliance Certification Intensive Course is also the most cost effective program offered by the Trust. Not only can CCPs and CCEs renew their credential in one sitting; those with certifications through other organizations can earn CEUs (see below) through this course. The design of this program was driven by HET members and the Trust’s Education Committee.

Our certification programs began before other folks could spell ‘compliance.’ Our credentialing programs continue to grow within stable basic assumptions:

  • Individuals of many backgrounds (law, ethics, accounting, audit, theology, business, military and law enforcement) become effective compliance officers. This diversity is a positive attribute of the field.
  • Certification is an objective, independent process intended to raise the status of compliance as a field of professional endeavor.
  • Certification has both educational and experiential components.
  • Ethics and integrity are essential to the success of compliance professionals.

HET Continuing Education Units

Completion of the Certification Intensive Course provides attendees with all educational required CEU’s to apply for the Health Ethics Trust’s Certified Compliance Professional (CCP) and Certified Compliance Executive (CCE) credentials and re-certification.

CEU's Towards External Certifications

Health Ethics Trust courses carry credit towards a number of external professional certifications and educational requirements.

This education activity has been submitted to the Compliance Certification Board (CCB)® and CCB CEUs are 28.8.

This course will be a Virtual Program Online.
