Community Health Worker – Certification
Community Health Workers are often responsible for the health of community members who may not be cared for by traditional medical institutions including culturally diverse populations and underserved community members. Community Health Workers often provide some basic direct services as well, such as first aid and some health screenings. In addition to the Community Health Worker A.A.S. degree, a five-month certification option is also offered for people who have a minimum of one year experience in a medical field. Please see the course outline below for certification details.
