More Info
									The National Commission for Health Education Credentialing NCHEC
 is the national accrediting organization for health educators,
 promoting the certified and master certified health education
specialist (CHES and MCHES, respectively) credential. Many government
and private sector jobs require that the health educator have at
least the CHES credential as a prerequisite qualification for work.
 NCHEC also administers the affirmation of approved continuing
education to maintain these credentials. Both CHES and MCHES are
required to take at least 75 continuing education contact hours
(CECH) every five years to be recertified.The provision and
 administration of the CHES credential represents the major strategy
 of NCHEC to fulfill its mission to "improve the practice of health
 education and to serve the public and profession of health education
 by certifying health education specialists, promoting professional
development, and strengthening professional preparation and practice."
NCHEC's quarterly newsletter is "The CHES Bulletin."
