CHE: Professional Development Opportunity and Advanced Standing

Our world and the healthcare community are at once living two different realities. There are those that are at the frontlines of the pandemic providing essential services, and those with more time on their hands as they find themselves in isolation and thinking about the future and what to do with their time and expertise.

Individuals that currently have more time for professional development have a unique opportunity to take the next step toward their Certified Health Executive (CHE) designation online. The CHE Select program represents an extensive journey into LEADS-based leadership development using tools, content and processes representing current best practices and evidence-informed adult learning principles.

You may be further along in achieving the CHE designation than you realize

If you have completed a LEADS Learning Series, or a LEADS 360 Assessment in the past 18 months you are already part way done. See below for more information.

Have you completed a LEADS Learning Series?

The LEADS Learning Series is one of four (4) components in the CHE Select Program and the only one that has an additional cost associated with it. Regardless of when you completed your LEADS Learning Series, if you have already completed this component, you are exempt from completing it again. Saving up to $2,200 and 18 months of work towards your CHE designation.

Have you completed a LEADS 360 Assessment?

A LEADS 360 Assessment is one of four (4) components in the CHE Select Program. If you have already completed this component within the past 18 months, you qualify for a discounted rate of $1,100 on the CHE Select Program. A savings of $500! In addition, you are significantly reducing the amount of work required to achieve your CHE designation.

Do you need to do a LEADS Learning Series?

The Canadian College of Health Leaders and CHA Learning, a division of HealthCare CAN, are pleased to offer LEADS Inspired Leadership, an online self-directed version of the LEADS Learning Series, one of the four (4) requirements to complete the CHE Select Program.

There is also a ‘bundled’ option, for both the CHE and LEADS Inspired Leadership Program. The bundle is the best value option for CHE applicants who are ready to purchase the CHE and LEADS Inspired Leadership Program Bundle online program at the same time. The online LEADS Inspired Leadership program is flexible, self paced, and meets the CHE LEADS Learning series requirement.

NEW! You may now choose a more flexible, affordable, and accessible option by purchasing the first course of the program, Lead Self, for $359, by June 30.
