Ebook Version:  A Competency-Based Framework for Health Education Specialists, 2015 Edition


Recommended for use in preparation for the revised MCHES exam effective April 2016 and revised CHES exam effective October 2016

The revised framework is based on the Health Education Specialist Practice Analysis (HESPA) – 2015, a project to update, refine and validate the model of health education practice.

The updated model consists of 258 Sub-competencies, organized into 36 Competencies within 7 major Areas of Responsibility. Of the Sub-competencies, 141 (54.7%) were validated as entry-level practice, 117 were validated as advanced-level practice only. Additionally, the knowledge base needed by health education specialists was organized into 10 conceptual topic areas, and 131 knowledge topics were validated as being used health education specialists.

The publication is an essential resource for health education students, college and university faculty, health education practitioners and employers, professional development providers, leaders of professional credentialing and program accreditation, and policy makers and funding agencies.
