Community Health Worker Training

The Department of Health is pleased to announce that registration is open for the Community Health Worker Training available in 2013. This FREE online training is part of the Healthy Communities Washington initiative which to increase access to quality preventative health care services and other community resources. We are working with Local Health Jurisdictions and the Breast, Cervical and Colon Heath Program to facilitate these trainings four times a year in seven regions around the state.

The training lasts eight weeks and is delivered through a blend of in-person and online classes. Participants gain valuable skills to reduce barriers and coordinate care for people. After completing the core training, participants can sign up for one-week training modules on health topics like heart disease, diabetes, and prostate cancer. Participants should plan on spending two to four hours each week to complete the online portion of the training.
