Our training programs emphasize health education and promotion as well as specific competencies for work in underserved and/or linguistically isolated communities. Upon successful completion of these program, students will receive a certificate of completion and will be able to apply to the Texas DSHS for either their CHW certification or CHW Instructor certification. Furthermore, for CHW Instructors, their certification will allow them to become affiliated with DHSH approved CHW Training Centers throughout Texas and train other CHWs with DSHS approved curriculum.
As a leader and primary resource for CHW and CHW Instructor trainings and certification programs, our vision is to certify new CHWs and Instructors while providing CEU opportunities both on-site and via distance learning. Our CEUs are focused on health-related topics as well as professional development.
