The official designation for a certified Community Health Worker is CCHW. In the state of Florida, the Florida Certification Board (FCB) provides this designation after the completion of requirements which include uploading documentation and completing the CHW Certification Exam.
Note that while the official name of the certificate is CCHW, Community Health workers are known to be recognized under various titles depending on which type of organization they work for. Some examples include Promotores(as) de Salud, Health Educator, Outreach Worker, or Health Advocate.
