Reach the Peak provides an annual interdisciplinary overview of asthma and allergy management and is a comprehensive review course for the National Asthma Educator Certification Board (NAECB) AE-C exam, with a curriculum based upon the AE-C exam matrix.
Facilitated by leading experts in their field, Reach the Peak incorporates problem-based learning methods with a combination of lecture, small group case scenarios, networking and comprehensive collaboration strategies. Proceeds from Reach the Peak support Roundup River Ranch, helping children and families with asthma and lung disorders to attend camp. Camp opportunities can be life changing for these children.

The NAECB exam is a voluntary testing program used to assess qualified health professional’s knowledge in asthma education. There are multiple testing sites throughout the United States. Upon successful completion of the AE-C exam an individual may add “AE-C” to their professional credentials. Continuing education credits from Reach the Peak may also be used to recertify for AE-C.
