About the AHA Certification Center (AHA-CC)
The AHA-CC was created in 1999 to develop and manage certification programs first released in 2000. The AHA-CC is staffed with experts in certification (test development and administration) and contracts with Applied Measurement Professionals, Inc. (AMP) for their psychometric expertise in exam development and administration, among other services. The AHA-CC has also contracted with other organizations to develop and manage their certification programs. Though now managed by their own staff, the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) contracted with AHA-CC for two years to develop and launch their certification program. American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) has retained the AHA-CC since 2007 to develop and manage two certification programs for nurse executives and leaders.
