Certified Tobacco Educator

The Tobacco Reduction Program is pleased to partner with the Canadian Network for Respiratory Care in the development of the Certified Tobacco Educator Competency Framework and learning units that will allow health professionals in Alberta to be eligible to write the credential exam. There are 5 AlbertaQuits pre-requisite learning units required prior to writing the exam:

  • Tobacco Basics
  • Tobacco Cessation Pharmacology
  • Intensive Tobacco Intervention
  • Applied Tobacco Intervention
  • Foundational Health Educator course.  

Certificates from all learning units are needed including status of having a degree or diploma in a recognized health care profession.  Additional comprehensive tobacco education training that meets the CNRC competencies may be considered. Contact CNRC directly to determine if your training qualifies. http://www.cnrchome.net/certifiedtobaccoeducators(cte).html
