CHES/MCHES Examination

Exam information can be found on the NCHEC Web site or call the office at 888-624-3248.

If you are not currently certified, we suggest you consider taking the MCHES examination and becoming certified. The more health practioners who become credentialed enhances the health education profession. As major strides are made to market the health education profession to the public, the more people certified strengthens that pursuit. A credentialed field is better recognized as competent by the public and other entities.
