Special notice for those recertifying as CHES or MCHES:

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.  Several of our programs will provide learning opportunities that can enable you to demonstrate up to 5 Continuing Competency CECHs as you prepare for recertification through a special  post-program assessment process.  To find out more about the assessment process which needs to be requested, please contact:
