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 Extended Learning, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. 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:

Gary D. Gilmore, M.P.H., Ph.D., MCHES, Professor and Director, Graduate Community Health/Public Health Programs 
Gilmore chaired the national research into the health education responsibilities and competencies called the National Competencies Update Project for eight years.
