National Commission for Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC) Exam Prep Workshop  

The CHES ® exam has met national standards in credentialing and has been accredited by the National Commission of Certifying Agencies since 2008. NCHEC also is internationally accredited as a Personnel Certification Body by the International Accreditation Service (IAS) to the ISO/IEC 17024 Conformity Assessment.

The Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES ®) examination is a competency-based tool used to measure possession, application and interpretation of knowledge in the Seven Areas of Responsibility for Health Education Specialists

This is only a workshop for the exam. Students taking the exam should be a Junior or Senior. Eligibility to take the CHESĀ® examination is based exclusively on academic qualifications. An individual is eligible to take the examination if he/she has an official transcript (including course titles) that clearly shows a major in health studies OR an official transcript that reflects at least 25 semester credits of course work (with a grade "c" or better) with specific preparation addressing the Seven Areas of Responsibility and Competency for Health Education Specialists.

The Health Education Specialist: A Companion Guide for Professional Excellence, 7th Edition is an excellent resource in studying for the examination, however, it is an optional purchase. The text price is $60.00 and can be purchased at the NCHEC web page
