Seven Areas of Responsibility

There are Seven Areas of Responsibilities that those working in Community Health must be
aware and knowledgeable. These areas can be found on the National Commission for Health
Education Credentialing’s website:
https://www.nchec.org/responsibilities-and-competencies

Here you will find the seven areas of responsibility and the competencies associated with each
area. Rowan’s program embeds these competencies in required classes. At the end of the
degree program at Rowan students will be eligible to take the Certified Health Education
Specialist (CHES) exam. Students will meet the requirements specified to take this important
exam.
