As a health science curriculum developer, we regularly speak with teachers who are adding new certifications to their pathway. When implementing new health science certifications, these teachers often ask us questions such as: “Is HealthCenter21 accredited?” and “How do I get my course accredited?” While many accredited health science programs use our HealthCenter21 curriculum to prepare their students for certification exams, AES is not a certifying body and cannot award accreditation to CTE programs.
