Our Privacy Security Individual Training is for a single individual looking to obtain their HIPAA Awareness training certification to satisfy the training requirement under HIPAA and to provide to an employer/organization as proof of training before they can allow you access to their patient’s health information.

If you are an organization looking to train your employees, please go to the HIPAA for Company section, select the type of company and look for the tab of TRAINING: Employees and Compliance Officer.

Our HIPAA Awareness training course is meant to satisfy the training requirement under HIPAA and as such everyone who has access to protected health information must take this course. If you are going to be responsible for HIPAA privacy compliance or you are IT staff that will be involved in implementing HIPAA Security compliance (the IT part of HIPAA) at your organization, then you want to consider one of the three expert-level professional courses (CHPSE, CHSE, CHPE see below for more info). The HIPAA Awareness training contains an overview of HIPAA Security for the average person whereas the expert-level courses contain more detailed regulatory information for someone who has to be responsible for HIPAA compliance. Use the flow chart to decide which is the right credential for you from the following 4 certifications. Most individuals who want only the Awareness training course but want a credential for it will select the Certified HIPAA Privacy Associate (CHPA).

As HIPAA is a federal regulation, it applies to all states. Our online training courses are valid for all US states and territories and meet and exceed the requirements for HIPAA training established by the federal HIPAA Privacy and HIPAA Security regulations.
