The SSH Certification Council is very excited to announce the first cycle to apply to become a Certified Healthcare Simulation Operations Specialist-Advanced is now open! This new certification is focused on recognizing those who are a CHSOS and have demonstrated leadership as well as advanced simulation capabilities at their own institution/organization and beyond. To apply for this certification requires compiling a structured portfolio that has a number of different items including narrative responses; a simulation-specific CV/resume; references; and submission of an exemplar (e.g. activity, innovation, device) that demonstrates the applicant’s advanced knowledges, skills, and abilities.

If you are interested in learning more about the specifics of this new certification, the handbook and all associated documents can be found by going to and exploring the information on our webpages.

If you meet the eligibility criteria and have gone above and beyond—apply now! Think about who you might know who would be qualified as well—and encourage them to apply as well.

After reviewing the information, if you have any questions, please email

Many thanks to the CHSOS-A Working Group for their hard work and dedication to bringing this new certification to the healthcare simulation community!
