Professional preparation programs that offer specialization in health education/health promotion may apply for CAEP Program Review with National Recognition.

Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) accredits teacher preparation programs. SHAPE America is the CAEP Specialized Professional Association (SPA) for health education, and as such, SHAPE America develops the guidelines for health education teacher education.

2008 Initial Health Education Teacher Education Standards
Programs seeking recognition through CAEP/SHAPE America must use the 2008 Initial HETE standards. SHAPE America is working to revise these standards. More information will be provided about the revised standards once they become available.
