Special notice for those recertifying as CHES or MCHES and demonstrating continuing competency: For those who are CHES or MCHES certified, there is an important recently initiated recertification requirement by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc. (NCHEC) termed Continuing Competency which is to be assessed by Multiple Event Providers (MEPs) like University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Graduate & Extended Learning. We fully support this requirement for those who are certified through NCHEC to demonstrate specified levels of knowledge, skills, and/or ability throughout one’s professional career. As a first step, you can go to visit the NCHEC website for additional information and the assessment form. Thereafter, you can communicate with Dr. Gilmore to discuss Continuing Competency performance options.
