Physician CCDS Exam Content Outline
IBHRE conducted a job task analysis (JTA) for the CCDS exam in 2021. A job analysis study is designed to obtain descriptive information about the tasks performed on a job and the knowledge needed to adequately perform those tasks. The purpose of the job analysis study was to:
- validate tasks and important knowledge; and,
- develop test specification.
As a result, IBHRE's previous exam content outline was updated. To view the current certification exam content outline, please click here.
Successful completion of the IBHRE Certification Examination for Competency in Cardiac Rhythm Device Therapy and/or IBHRE Certification Examination for Competency in Cardiac Electrophysiology is not a requirement to perform or participate in pacemaker related and/or electrophysiology therapy, and does not attest to the overall capability or competency of any physician or allied professional. These examinations are computer-based examinations only and do not include any testing in a practical setting. IBHRE does not intend to interfere with or to restrict the professional activity of a licensed physician because the physician has not successfully completed the examination. Similarly, IBHRE does not intend to interfere with or to restrict the professional activity of a non-physician because of these examination processes.
