Learn the basics of health care quality, risk management, utilization, accreditation, patient safety, and more. To fulfill the educational requirement for the certification exam, most examinees take advantage of the CBK Course. While the course is recommended as a valuable overview of HCQM, it is not required and does not ensure successful completion of the exam.
