Preparing for the CHC Exam: A Resource List

The Certified Healthcare Constructor (CHC) exam features questions organized into four broad domains: healthcare industry fundamentals; the planning, design, and construction process; healthcare facility safety additions and renovations; and financial stewardship.

The following resources may be helpful in preparing for the exam, though this is not a complete list and this reading material does not cover exam questions directly. ASHE does not have access to the questions on the exam, which is offered through the AHA Certification Center. This list is intended to be a starting point for those interested in studying for the CHC exam, as well as a list of general reading for all health care construction professionals.

If you are not sure which materials you should focus on, consider starting by reading the detailed domains in the CHC Candidate Handbook and Application or by taking the CHC Self-Assessment Exam to find your strengths and weaknesses. If you are not yet an ASHE member, consider joining to gain access to the members-only resources and discounts listed below.
