An asthma educator is defined as an expert in teaching, educating, and counseling individuals with asthma and their families in the knowledge and skills necessary to minimize the impact of asthma on their quality of life.  A minimum of 1,000 hours of experience is needed before individuals can take the certification exam. 

Professionals who hold the AE-C certification include licensed or credentialed individuals from the following list: physicians, physician assistants, nurses, respiratory therapists, pulmonary function technologists, pharmacists, social workers, health educators, physical therapists, and occupational therapists. A second group who is allowed to sit for the exam and hold the AE-C credential includes those who are providing asthma education, counseling, or coordination of services directly to asthma patients.
