The following general eligibility requirements must be met by all ABCHS applicants:
The assessment component of the CHS-I is a certification exam that covers critical aspects of homeland security. To maintain CHS-I certification, those with CHS-I designations are required to obtain 30 Continuing Education Units (CEU) per three-year recertification cycle. This is waived if the CHS-I holder obtains the CHS-II credential within that 3 year period.
CHS-I is proctored through Pearson Vue and is available to all candidates across the United States.
Military Personnel: Pearson VUE offers professional ABCHS certification exams to U.S. military service members on-site at military installation testing centers worldwide.
