    Hi Christina,

    If you sit for RHIA exam and pass, it would not make sense to try to sit for the RHIT. RHIA certification is at a higher level than the RHIT.

    What are you trying to accomplish by sitting for the RHIT after passing the RHIA?

    Are you looking for something that helps increase your marketability for a specific career path? For example, coding? If this is the case there are secondary credentials you can earn such as the the CCS/CCS-P for coding or CHPS for Privacy/Security.
