Cardiovascular Care Coordinator Certification (C4) is a program that ACC created for coordinators of disease-specific or procedural accreditation programs. It was designed to provide cardiac healthcare professionals with the skills necessary to be a successful Cardiovascular Care Coordinator. As previously announced, the C4 program is being redesigned and expanded to meet the professional needs of coordinators. In 2020, ACC will NOT offer new certifications, and will only offer recertification for the existing certification holders.

Individuals with C4 Certifications that expire(d) at any point in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 must now apply for re-certification to keep their C4 Certification active. Please gather your personal and professional information and required documents before opening the application link. You will need to complete the application the first time it is opened, you cannot exit and enter at another time.

You can also purchase a bundle including the C4 Re-Certification Application and the C4 review Course. Details are below.

This purchase is non-refundable. If your application is approved, your C4 Certification will be extended until 12/31/2021.
