As of January 1, 2016, The American College will no longer be accepting new enrollees into the REBC® and ChHC® programs. Current students have until June 30, 2017, to complete their designation.

Registered Employee Benefits Consultant® (REBC®) Program

The Registered Employee Benefits Consultant® (REBC®) program focuses on providing the student with the knowledge necessary to become a professional in the sale and service of employee benefits plans. Individuals earning the REBC designation develop an understanding of the various types of group benefits and retirement plans, and the practical knowledge needed for choosing and/or designing the best benefits package that will meet the client's needs.

Chartered Healthcare Consultant® (ChHC®) Program

The Chartered Healthcare Consultant® (ChHC®) designation starts with two key courses: Essentials of Healthcare Reform and The Healthcare Consultant. Both are offered in a 10-week live class format for full college credit.

Whether you are calling on individuals or businesses, you need to equip yourself with industry trends to be the most effective advisor in today’s healthcare environment. Even advisors who aren’t involved with healthcare benefits should know the basic terminology and parameters of the new laws, because ancillary benefit programs will also be affected. Healthcare is what employers and individuals are thinking about and these courses offer an in-depth, comprehensive approach to education on the issue.
