We are pleased to announce that effective immediately, HITRUST Academy will be providing Certified CSF Practitioner (CCSFP) classes in a virtual classroom environment. HITRUST is committed to providing the highest quality training experience and has designed a virtual training program consistent with those expectations.

This virtual training environment will be your only option for participating in a CCSFP class through September 30, 2020 with in-person classroom environment scheduled to resume in October 2020. We have added additional CCSFP training classes for individuals previously unable to participate in training due to availability or for those interested in moving up a class scheduled for later in the year.

If you have registered for an onsite class that was canceled or suspended, we will either automatically reschedule you to a virtual class during the same week or contact you to assist in rescheduling to a different week if your original date is not available. There will be no fee or penalty for changing dates*.
