As a service to the health education specialists of Arkansas, Arkansas SOPHE has established guidelines to approve continuing education activities for continuing education credit for Certified Health Education Specialists/Master Certified Health Education Specialists (CHES/MCHES) and Certified Public Health Educators (CPHE).  Arkansas SOPHE has been designated as a provider of continuing education contact hours by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc. for (M)CHES and the Arkansas Board of Health Education for CPHEs.

In order to be eligible to award Category I (M)CHES/CECHs, an activity must meet the definition of continuing education.  The National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc., has defined continuing education as education experiences which assist in the development or enhancement of knowledge and/or skills directly related to the seven responsibilities and related competencies for entry level health educators.
