2020 Competency-based Framework for Health Education Specialists 

 

The newly released revised framework is based on the Health Education Specialist Practice Analysis II 2020 (HESPA II 2020), a project to update, refine and validate the model of health education practice. The HESPA II 2020 model is designed for use by those in the health education & promotion profession as a framework for professional preparation, credentialing, and professional development. The updated hierarchical model consists of 193 Sub-competencies, organized into 35 Competencies within 8 major Areas of Responsibility. Additionally, the knowledge base needed by health education specialists was organized into 10 conceptual topic areas, and 145 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. The CHES and MCHES examinations will be revised based on this updated framework.

The Health Education Specialist: A Companion Guide for Professional Excellence- 2020

The Eigth Edition of this Companion Guide is based on the Health Education Specialist Practice Analysis II 2020 (HESPA II 2020), a project to update, refine and validate the model of health education practice.  The Companion Guide was developed to assist with preparation for both the CHES and MCHES exams, beginning in April of 2022 (for MCHES) and October of 2022 (for CHES). It includes two full-length practice tests, one for use in studying for the CHES examination and one for the MCHES examination. 

The publication explores the newly delineated Eight Areas of Responsiblity for Health Education Specialists, and can be used as a tool to assess health education knowledge. Instructors in professional preparation programs may find the format and organization of this book to be a useful supplement to textbooks and classroom lectures. Employers can encourage their employees to use this book as a tool to determine whether additional professional development in specific areas is needed, especially in this changing health education landscape. 

This publication should not be used in place of primary sources of study and preparation, but rather as a supplemental tool for identifying areas of practice that may require further study using nationally recognized scholarly references. Exam preparation should not be limited to this study guide.
