Through the 6-year National Health Educator Competencies Update Project (CUP), in 2004, the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc. (NCHEC), American Association for Health Education (AAHE), and Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) completed verification of advanced-level competencies and subcompetencies for health educators. Along with this verification, it was recommended in the CUP report that NCHEC should consider implementing advanced-level certification to parallel advanced health education practice. Similarly, during this same period, the National Task Force on Accreditation (NTFA) recommended that entry and advanced levels of practice be distinguished. To glean health educators' input regarding advanced-level certification, an online feasibility survey study, under the direction of the NCHEC CUP Implementation Committee, was conducted by Professional Examination Service (PES). This survey was available for health educators to complete online from October 10-29, 2006. This paper presents a summary and interpretation of the results of the Advanced Certification Feasibility Survey, which was submitted to the NCHEC CUP Implementation Committee in January 2007.
