American Board of Health Physics Certification (CHP) Exam Review

Live Class in Denver


​The famous Colorado State University online class is now being taught “live” for the first time!  The purpose of this one week CHP review class is to help you to identify your weak areas, and prepare you for the type of questions and topic areas that will be on the exam.  

We are offering both a part 1 and a part 2 review class. Dr. Thomas E. Johnson, CHP, CLSO, NRRPT, will be teaching the classes. He has taught CHP review classes for the past 15 years. In the past 4 years alone, approximately 20% of those who pass the exam have taken one of his classes as a part of their preparation. 

Passing the exam will take significant effort on your part. Please note that a CHP review class alone will not be sufficient preparation to pass the CHP exam, but it will help you to organize your study plan, and determine where to focus your study efforts.  There is no “secret” to passing the exam, except a thorough preparation, and this class can be a significant part of your preparation process.
