Certified Health Executive Program

Since its inception in 1984, the Certified Health Executive (CHE™) program has attracted many of the country’s top health leaders. In fact, nearly half of College members have achieved certification.

The development of this capabilities-based program was a collaborative effort involving College members from across the country as well board members and staff. Given the constant changes within the Canadian health system, all elements of the CHE Program are regularly reviewed and revised by the CHE Program Committee and the Professional Standard Council. In 2013, the CHE Program was revised to align with the LEADS in a Caring Environment Capabilities Framework.

Certified members of the College retain the designation for as long as they continue to be members in good standing and meet the Maintenance of Certification conditions. When membership is discontinued, the designation is revoked.
