Resource Materials

The Certified Hotel Administrator review program is a self-paced online program that helps you prepare for the CHA certification exam. You can access it online or download the content into a mobile device, tablet or computer.

The program is segmented by modules with topics including - 

  • Financial Management
  • Food and Beverage Management
  • Human Resources
  • Leadership
  • Marketing and Sales
  • Revenue Management
  • Rooms Management

We can focus on one area at a time in any order. Each module includes a practice quiz that you can take as many times as you wish before attempting to take any final sections of the certification exam.

Exam Details

The final CHA certification exam is broken down by sections at the end of each module. Each section of the final exam has 35 questions that you are allowed 35 minutes to complete. To pass, you must achieve 70 per cent or higher on each segment. You have two attempts to pass each section of the final certification exam. If you do not achieve a passing score, you can purchase two additional retakes for $100 per section.


How do I pay for my CHA program fee?

Once the Certification Department has accepted your online application, an email will be sent to you with payment instructions.

How do I access my online study material?

Instructions for access to the CHA Online Review will be emailed to you upon payment of the CHA program fee.

How long do I have to complete the CHA program?

Once payment has been received, you will have one year to pass all seven CHA online exam sections.

Are there any options to practice the exam before I take the real thing?

Yes. Within each online review section, under the Table of Contents, there is an icon labeled "Practice Quiz." Click on that icon to begin the practice exam for that section. You can take each "Practice Quiz" as many times as you need. Please keep in mind that the scores are overwritten each time you take the quiz.

How do I take the CHA exam?

Make sure that you are logged in to the CHA course. From there, you will be able to access all seven exam sections. Exam sections do not need to be taken in the order listed in the course.

Should I take all seven exam sections at one time?

Because the online review and exams are broken down in sections, we recommend focusing on one section at a time. The option is available to go through each course section, then take the corresponding exam section; or, if you feel well versed in the content, you can take the exam without reviewing the course material. Of course, we highly recommend a review of the material prior to taking any of the seven exam sections.

What is the time limit for each exam?

Once you have started the certification exam, you will have 35 minutes to complete the section. The exam is timed; if you leave your computer for any reason, the clock continues to run.

What score do I need to have to pass the exam?

To pass the CHA exam, each of the seven 35-question online exam sections will need to be successfully completed with a passing score of at least 70 percent. If for any reason you do not achieve a passing score on any section, you will need to retake that section.

How do I retake the exam?

Candidates are allotted one re-take of each of the seven CHA exam sections with payment of the CHA program fee. If you do not pass a retake exam, you can purchase two more retakes for US $100; once the retake fee has been processed, you will then have two more retakes available for EACH exam section that you did not pass.
