Certification and Technical Assistance Endorsement

The North Carolina Child Care Health Consultant Certification and Technical Assistance Endorsement (CCHC-C/E) verifies that a qualified health professional has met the requirements established by the NCCCHCA and the NC Institute for Child Development Professionals.

These requirements reflect the education, training and experience necessary to provide technical assistance, consultation, coaching, and training about health and safety to early care and education facilities. The CCHC-C/E recognizes and validates the educational accomplishments of the NC CCHC workforce through an assessment of an individual’s verified level of formal educational achievement based on a standardized scale and assigns a CCHC-C/E level.

The CCHC-C/E requires ongoing continuing education to maintain certification status.

How do I become a CCHC C/E?

NC CCHC Certification/Endorsement is available to eligible CCHCs who have successfully completed the NC Child Care Health and Safety Resource Center’s NC CCHC Course.
