EDLL 2005 - Health Physics Exam Review

  • Noncredit
View available sections

Get the support you need to efficiently prepare for your certified health physicist exam. This 16-week class lets you study at times and places convenient to you!

Although you cannot pass the CHP exam with this class alone, it gives you invaluable tools to set up a regular, focused study program leading to success! The American Board of Health Physics (ABHP) has approved this class for 32 continuing education credits, and the American Academy of Health Physics has given it approval #2007-00-035 as providing 32 hours of continuing education credit.

Why should you take this course? Because it will:

  • Benefit any health physicist eligible to take part 1 or 2 of the CHP exam who wants a structured review of the relevant topics.
  • Help you identify your weaknesses and provide guidance on what to study.
  • Refresh your memory on each topic and present example questions and answers like those on the CHP exam.
  • Provide strategies for test taking, explore thumb rules, and offer multiple strategies for solving problems.
  • Give you information on what to study and identify areas where you need to concentrate.

The Health Physics Certification Review class is streamed over the Internet and can be viewed at your convenience. Students interact by email, and each is assigned an individual mentor to track progress.

Profits from the class support the CSU Student Chapter of the Health Physics Society.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.

Important Information

Student questions will be answered and online support for this course will continue until the CHP exam is administered in July. This class will require a significant time commitment. For late registration contact the instructor.
