The cost of online CCI classes, sponsored by the Cardiovascular Credentialing International organization, is embedded into the cost of a three-year membership, which is $150 per applicant, as of 2016. Applicants who successfully pass the certification exam offered by CCI can then take continuing education courses to maintain their certification.
Registry-level registrants must complete required courses during the three-year membership with 30 continuing education units related to cardiovascular care and treatment, as of 2016. Individuals who are certificate-level registrants are required to complete 16 units of continuing education units during the three-year membership cycle. Registrants who do not complete the required number of continuing education units are placed on inactive status.
