Each module can be customized to match the specifics of your program, your organization, and the work that your staff of Community Health Workers are or will be doing.

These modules can be completed individually, by combining several training modules, or as part of a complete Community Health Worker training package. If you would like to create a custom training program with these modules, please feel free to contact us for additional information and pricing.

Personalized Training

With our Custom Community Health Worker Training you can develop a personalized training plan that meets your needs and training interests. You can combine Core Competencies or Program-Specific modules into a custom Community Health Worker training package, or work with one of our expert trainers to develop your own training program.

We can also work with you to develop and conduct Community Health Worker knowledge assessments to help you decide what skills to train on, build a custom training program based on those needs.

Please note that as with our other Community Health Worker training packages, a custom Community Health Worker training program can only be provided on-site, to ensure that the training is fully interactive and as effective as possible.

Training hours and costs will vary depending on the support that your organization requires. For more information and a free consultation to help you build your custom Community Health Worker training, please contact us.

To compliment our Community Health Worker training options, we also have several program materials, manuals and documents available for download. There are a range of free resources available on our online portfolio.

Why Community Health Worker Training Matters

High quality training is an essential component of successful Community Health Worker programs and in order to gain the most benefit from training sessions, trainers need to build on the skills that Community Health Workers already have, present information in a culturally appropriate and accessible way, and review key knowledge areas as well as provide specific tools and techniques for the programs they will be working in.

Personalized Training & Support

All of our training packages are customizable and include pre-training meetings to learn more about your organization and your goals for the training session. We will request information about your Community Health Worker staff prior to the training, including the specifics of your Community Health Worker program and additional details to help us develop the best training for you.

To ensure that our training services meet your needs, we also include post-training “any time” support with each of our training packages. Our experts are available through this on-call support to discuss further details on topics from the training session or answer any questions about Community Health Workers programs in general. Please review the individual training modules for additional information about the included on-call support.
