Survey Says IEHA Programs Help Members "Survive and Thrive"

The International Executive Housekeepers Association (IEHA) recently surveyed its members to validate the value of IEHA’s educational programs, including the CEH and REH Certifications.

  Survey highlights:
  • Of 247 members surveyed, 77% said IEHA education significantly helped them gain job skills and self-confidence (rating overall helpfulness between 7-10 with 10 being highest). The largest subset rated it a “10”.
  • Out of hundreds of IEHA members surveyed about their earning potential before becoming CEH or REH Certified, the largest subset said their pre-certification earning potential was just average (rating it 5 out of ten with 10 being highest). Of those same IEHA members surveyed about their earning potential after they became CEH or REH Certified, the largest subset said their earning potential was excellent (rating it 9 out of ten with 10 being highest) after being certified.
  • Out of 236 members polled to assess the Return on Investment (ROI) from their IEHA education, 77% believed IEHA programs yielded 100%-1,000% or greater ROI.
  “We are gratified to see these results confirm what we have long believed, that IEHA education is the key to job security, professional growth and advancement for our members,” said Beth Risinger, CEO of IEHA.

  “Armed with this information, our members can make a strong case for conveniently pursuing higher education through our Professional Education Credentialing Programs (PECP),” said Sarah Larsen, IEHA Deputy Director.  “And they can now do it at their own pace and speed online at”  For more information on PECP, visit
