Welcome to the CHES Exam Study Tips App and Think Like a Health Educator E-course
A certified health education specialist also known as CHES teaches behaviors that promote wellness. They develop and implement strategies to improve the health of individuals and communities.

The CHES Exam Study Tips Android and Apple apps are FREE to download.
Yes, anyone can use the app. The purpose of the CHES Exam Study Tips app is to equip aspiring Certified Health Education Specialists aka CHES with free to low cost resources to prepare well for the exam.
I took the CHES exam in October of 2004 and failed the exam by three measly points. Seven years later, I decided to take the exam again and the second-time I passed it. The app and e-course is a result of me not wanting others to go through what I went through. The app provides an overview of key terms as well as practice exam questions. The e-course is a 15 week program providing accountability, guided mentorship by a CHES trained mentor and 15 homework assignments designed to build self confidence in the mastery of the 7 areas of responsibility.
– Download the CHES Exam Study Tips app by URA Resource Center for Android and Apple users.
– Email email@example.com to request the CHES Exam Study Tips sheet and work towards defining the terminology then use it in a sentence aloud and on paper for best application and understanding.
– Find a CHES certified mentor to guide you with real-world examples to assist with putting the book smarts, theory and models to the test.
– Purchase the latest of the Companion guide on the NCHEC.org website and be sure to align your internship, job duties and service learning opportunities with entry level competencies of the 7 areas of responsibility for CHES. Utilize the practice test exam questions in the back of the companion guide to begin speed testing to ensure mastery of key terminology and reduced overthinking.
– Realize over 50% of the exam questions will assess the mastery of the first three areas of responsibility: Assess, Plan and Implement.
– For at least 3 months, prioritize and schedule at least 15 to 30 minutes of daily time for review of companion guide, defining/sentencing key terminology and taking/scoring practice exam.
Currently, the national CHES exam pass rate is 68% and the 15-week e-course program pass rate is 83%. Participants who register for the e-course and do not pass the CHES exam report issues with test anxiety and time management. Recently, the October 2019 program participants who completed the Think Like A Health Educator e-course (n=5) all PASSED the CHES Exam.
