Students in the health education specialist certificate program gain foundational knowledge in public health education and health promotion and in certified health education specialist competencies. This qualifies graduates to sit for the CHES exam, offered by the National Council on Health Education Credentialing.
The CHES is recognized nationally and globally as a valuable, respected and desirable credential in a variety of fields. Health professionals with a broad range of specializations, from nutrition to kinesiology, have found the CHES to be an excellent complement to their disciplinary knowledge because it emphasizes effective methods for educating individuals and communities on ways to improve health behaviors and outcomes. Earning the CHES showcases competency-based skills and provides professionals a competitive edge, as more employers prefer certified applicants.
