Exam Overview
Established in 2004, the Certificate for OASIS Specialist-Clinical (COS-C) exam is the premier, nationally standardized, psychometrically validated test that evaluates an individual's knowledge of CMS' OASIS guidelines.   Domains covered by the COS-C exam include OASIS regulations, data collection time points, patient populations, data collection conventions and OASIS data set item-by-item guidance.  Since it's inception, more than 20,000 candidates have participated in the exam process.

The exam items are developed by the COS-C Exam Review Committee, a group of OASIS content experts of varied backgrounds and disciplines, who create these items to reflect the OASIS knowledge and skills identified as necessary for competent OASIS data collection. The COS-C exam is reviewed and regularly updated, including regular item analysis, to determine that all test items are performing as originally intended.

About the COS-C Exam
The COS-C exam was originally developed and administered by the OASIS Certificate & Competency Board (OCCB). The COS-C exam is a voluntary certificate examination available to home care providers interested in demonstrating and establishing their expertise and commitment to OASIS data accuracy. Exam administrators go to great lengths to ensure that the COS-C exam is an accurate reflection of the most current CMS guidance, and that it is administered in a way to protect the integrity of the resulting COS-C designation. This requires vigilance in both exam analysis and proctoring efforts. Candidates agree to respect test integrity by participation in a confidentiality agreement.

Candidates who successfully pass the examination are awarded the COS-C designation.
