A minimum of 90% of CEH's must be professional studies related to:
- Linguistic and cultural studies – the study of any language or linguistic system and the study of any specific culture.
- Theoretical and experiential studies – the process of interpreting and transliterating theory and skill-building activities.
- Specialization studies – specialized aspects of interpreting used in settings such as legal, medical, mental health and substance-abuse recovery fields.
A maximum of 10% of CEH's must be general studies related to:
- Human service and leadership studies – topics such as leadership skills, public relations, public speaking and community resources.
- General knowledge studies – areas less obviously related to the field of interpreting and transliteration but are educationally beneficial to the participant.

- Professional service delivery
- Lunch, dinner, socials, or entertainment
- Activities that are part of one's routine job responsibilities (i.e., inservice or work-related training meetings)
