Self Study

The recent economic downturn has made it prohibitive for many public health professionals to travel to meetings and stay abreast of contemporary developments in health promotion and health education. Therefore SOPHE remains committed to providing professional development opportunities for professionals to independently advance their skills and knowledge in an array of topic areas.

Certified Health Education Specialists (CHES), SOPHE members and non-SOPHE members alike, may acquire continuing education contact hours (CECH) through the self-study opportunities offered by SOPHE. Self-study options include participating in a webinar (both live and recorded), completing a self-study test in SOPHE’s two premiere journals, Health Education & Behavior and Health Promotion Practice, as well as peer reviewing or publishing a manuscript in one of the journals.

Please note that a Certificate of Attendance will be issued within 30 days of National SOPHE's receipt of the CHES evaluation forms and payment for any of our self study continuing education events.
