How to Apply in 8 Simple Steps

1 Required

Step 1 – Become familiar with the designation

You will find all the information you need about the CCHP exam in the Candidate Handbook and the “About CCHP” tab in this website. This section contains eligibility requirements, benefits to the CCHP designation, and information regarding the entire examination process. You can also find information on the current fees for the exam and preparation resources.

Step 2 – Check if you are eligible

Once you have explored the benefits and decided to apply for the exam, review the eligibility requirements.

Applicants are required to have:

  • 3 years of practical work experience within the last 5 years. This must be in a role that is relatable with the HACCP profession, or in a profession or similar role where you can demonstrate relevant experience.
  • Volunteer, research and academic practical HACCP work experience. This may count for up to 1 year of the 3-year HACCP work experience requirement.

FPHRC is responsible for conducting an annual random audit of 5%-10% of all applications through which evidence of information reported by candidates is requested. Candidates will be informed if their submission may be subject to an audit.

Step 3 – Complete and submit the Work Experience Portfolio

Once you have determined you are eligible to take the exam, complete your Work Experience Portfolio. This form can be filled out and submitted online.

This form must be completed before writing the exam. Without it, your experience could not be properly justified and you would not be deemed eligible.

Step 4 – Register and Pay for your Exam

Once you have completed and submitted your Work Experience Portfolio to the registrar, you will be able to register for your Exam.

After completing the registration form, you will be prompted to pay the exam fee. If you have one, a voucher number can save on some of the expenses. Have this number handy as you pay the exam fee and complete the registration process.

Payment with Credit Card

Follow the given instructions and proceed to pay with your credit card.

Payment with Voucher from Employer

If you have a voucher number given by your employer, enter the voucher number when prompted by the system during the online registration process.

Payment with Voucher given by the FPHRC

The FPHRC offers a discount to its members. If you are a FPHRC member, you can call them at 613-237-7988 to pay for your exam by credit card. After payment, you will receive a voucher number from the FPHRC.

Step 5 – Wait for Approval

When Steps 1-4 are fully completed, your application will be revised by the registrar to verify that you satisfy the 3 year work experience requirement and all other eligibilities.

The registrar will:

  • Determine if sufficient information is provided by candidate.
  • Determine if minimum work experience is achieved. This may involve verifying information for authenticity.
  • The registrar may contact you for additional information or clarity.

The review and approval process by the registrar will take approximately 5 business days. After that time has passed, you will receive an email letting you know whether your application was approved or denied. If denied, you will qualify for a refund. If approved, you can move on to the next step.

Step 6 – Prepare for your Exam

Preparing is one of the most important steps for any exam. The FPHRC offers several resources to prepare for this exam, which you can find in the HACCP Store. The Practice Exam (see Step 6B), National Occupational Standards Package, and Developing a HACCP Plan manual, E-Book are exceptional sources available for purchase.

You can also find information on the content of the exam, sample questions, and additional resources for free around the CCHP website.


Step 6B – Practice Exam

The CCHP Practice Exam is an excellent study resource, as it mimics the feel, content, and structure of the designation exam. It is conveniently available online for free, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Unlike the official exam, the Practice Exam is not virtually proctored.

The Practice Exam’s main purpose is served when a candidate feels comfortable with the online, multiple choice structure, and is aware of what gaps in knowledge to fill when the practice is completed.

Step 7 – Write the Exam

Congratulations, you’ve been approved! As soon as you receive an email stating your application has been accepted, follow those included instructions.

The provided instructions will let you know how to set up your exam with the virtual proctor, and how to take the exam. Your virtual proctor acts as an online supervisor throughout the writing process to monitor cooperation via webcam. The exam and proctors are available on demand online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at a quiet location of your choice (home, closed office, library, etc.).

Make sure to schedule the exam within 30 days of being approved, or else the offer will expire. Candidates have one (1) year to write the exam after scheduling.

After completing and submitting your exam, the unofficial results (pass/fail) will appear in a pop-up on your computer screen.

Step 8 – Receive your Designation

Successful applicants will receive:

  • An official certificate confirming their status as a Canadian Certified HACCP Professional;
  • A transcript of the skills assessed during the exam;
  • A CCHP logo lapel pin; and
  • Their name added to the National CCHP Roster.

Step 8B - Retake the Exam

If the applicant was not successful, they will receive information on costs and steps to re-write the exam. Candidates will need to wait 30 days before re-writing the exam, as well as pay the additional re-write fee.
