In recent years, we have a 100% pass rate on the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) examination. By completing the CHES examination, students will be easily identifiable as qualified individuals by future employers. Also, this certification is nationally recognized giving students the flexibility of having the certification regardless of where they reside.
