Overview

The Michigan Community Health Worker Alliance (MiCHWA), in collaboration with Michigan Primary Care Association (MPCA) and MI Works, is launching a Community Health Worker (CHW) training. Individuals who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of completion signed by MiCHWA. Successful completion of the program does not guarantee employment but does enhance your employability in the community health worker profession.

 

Description

The curriculum is designed to train front-line health workers to provide culturally responsive services in Michigan communities. Each of the 8 core competencies are presented in modules that promote the development of skills needed to become gainfully employed as a community health worker and enhance the knowledge base of those already employed. The internship consist of field experiences in local agencies where the focus is for the student to apply and integrate their course work into practice. CHWS who are currently employed will complete internship at their place of work. Participation will require computer access, with webcam/microphone/speakers, and internet access to complete the online sessions.
