Spring 2015 courses which have been approved for one or more categories of the CHS certificate will be available soon. If you don't see a course that you believe should be listed, please notify us. We will review the course description and contact the instructor for input and permission. In general, a CHS course should have at least 30% of its content devoted to topics in human health.
