TPCA offers the Financial Manager's Certificate Program. This program tests knowledge and understanding of key financial reporting areas that are unique to Community Health Centers.
The 2-year program was launched in May 2008. Points are accumulated for completing the testing modules online and participating in TPCA and National Partner training opportunities. Currently, the modules cover:
- Budget Finance
- Financial Status Report (FSR)
- Medicare Cost Report
- Prospective Payment System (PPS)
- Uniform Data Set (UDS)
The program costs $200 to enroll and must be completed within 2 years. After the initial 2 years in the program, the cost for continuance is $100 per year. The continuance includes access to any new modules within the program.
