Who is the certified family life educator? The work of certified family life educators (CFLE) is a relatively new concept that has been validating the work of family advocates and workers. The National Council on Family Relations developed the CFLE certification in 1984. This study is the first ethnographic snapshot of the profession. The goal of the study is to explain the CFLE by understanding the people who are practicing CFLEs through a quantitative web-based survey. The study showed that CFLEs as a group are similar to other human service workers in demographic make up. Their uniqueness lies in their expertise and their desire to increase the number of CFLEs. Understanding this profession will aid in advancement and recognition of CFLEs.
