Important Announcement from the NAECB

We are pleased to announce that the National Asthma Educator Certification Board (NAECB) is joining forces with the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC), effective September 1, 2022!

What does this mean if you are a Certified Asthma educator (AE-C®) or want to become an AE-C®?

  • Our National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) accredited AE-C® examination will continue to be offered
  • Your AE-C® credential is still valid through the dates noted on your certificate
  • You can continue to re-certify, either through continuing education credits or the AE-C examination

What’s changing?  The NBRC will be assuming the assets of NAECB and adding the AE-C examination to its cadre of credentialing examinations. The NBRC, with its mission of promoting excellence in respiratory care, has a long, successful history of administering credentialing examinations, including those for Certified Respiratory Therapists (CRT), Registered Respiratory Therapists (RRT), and several specialty examinations including pulmonary function, neonatal/pediatric respiratory care, adult critical care and sleep disorders testing and therapeutic intervention.

We are excited to transfer the AE-C examination to the NBRC and  look forward to the NBRC growing this program long into the future.  Watch for more details coming soon from the NBRC!



The NAECB exam is a voluntary testing program used to assess qualified health professionals knowledge in asthma education.

It is an evaluative process that demonstrates that rigorous education and experience requirements have been met. Certification is voluntary and is not required by law for employment in the field, although some agencies may use AE-C® certification as a basis for employment, job promotions, salary increases, or other considerations.

PSI began an official re-opening of domestic owned and operated test centers May 1st, with most sites open by May 18th. As of May 29th 168 of the 187 US owned and operated sites are now open to take your AE-C examination.

For the remaining closed test centers, you can access the list at:
