Academically trained health education specialists have had the opportunity to become credentialed as CHES since 1989. This study was designed to find out why health education specialists decide to obtain the CHES credential, and why do those who obtain the credential decide to continue to be certified. The study population consisted of 3,191 current holders of the CHES credential. Forty-two percent of those invited to participate in the study completed usable questionnaires. The results showed different reasons for why they initially obtained the CHES credential and why they continued to hold it. Several obstacles for maintaining their CHES credential were also identified.
