Community Health Worker Training Programs
As a community health worker, you will provide the first line of support for people in need of assistance with health care and social services. NTC’s Community Health Worker program will prepare you to serve in a variety of health care organizations. You will gain the knowledge and skills needed to help your community increase and improve access to health care, improve access to health care for racial and ethnic minorities, improve quality of care for the chronically ill, promote healthy communities and educate families about access to and use of health care coverage. Community health workers perform a broad range of health-related functions and play an important role in bridging the gap between cultures and health care systems.
The program is offered online with one or two synchronous, virtual meetings. Students have the opportunity to select an internship site in their own community. Certificate info can be found here.
