Showcase Your Competence and Professionalism

CCHP Certification

The Certified Corporate Housing Professional (CCHP) certification highlights you and exemplifies your competence and professionalism within the corporate housing industry. The CCHP certification demonstrates your knowledge of sales & marketing, operations and finance as applied to the industry. Individuals holding this certification uphold the values of the profession and continue to hold themselves to the most current education offered.

How will being a CCHP benefit me?

As with all professional credentials, holding the CCHP showcases your professional knowledge and showcases to your peers, partners and clients that you have a true mastery of your profession. Holding the CCHP also provides confirmation of your knowledge of the industry's best practices and your commitment to continuing your professional education (you must apply for recertification every 3 years). Gaining this certification as one of the top executives of your company also moves your company one step closer to receiving the CHPA Company Accreditation as well.
