OASIS Certification Exams
These voluntary exams have been developed to allow participants to demonstrate their abilities in accurate OASIS completion.
Certificate for OASIS Specialist, Clinical (COS-C) Exam: Now administered by OASIS Answers, Inc., administrative changes have precluded OCHCH from hosting an exam site for the COS-C Exam, as done in the past. COS-C candidates may arrange to take the exam on a date of their choosing at one of five regional computer-based testing centers in Ohio. Details at oasisanswers.com.
Home Care Clinical Specialist, OASIS (HCS-O) Exam: This new certification is designed for home care clinicians with at least two years' experience working with OASIS.
