Certified COPD Educator (CCE) For US Candidates Only

The Certified COPD Educator (CCE) credential recognizes healthcare professionals who provide COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) education to their clients. The CCE credential demonstrates to your clients, peers and supervisors that you have the competencies to provide comprehensive, evidence-informed care in COPD.

The Certified COPD Educator (CCE) exam tests educator proficiency in two important aspects of COPD education:

  • up-to-date knowledge about COPD (the "what to teach")
