Community Health Worker Training (CHW)
Milwaukee AHEC is an established provider of Community Health Worker Training. Recognizing that there is a need for community health workers to serve as a “bridge” between community members and the health care delivery system, Milwaukee AHEC launched the Community Health Worker Training Program in 2010.
The training program is employer-endorsed, with partner health systems in the metro Milwaukee area, and culminates in learners earning a certification from Milwaukee AHEC.
Our CHW Training has clear objectives for participants to demonstrate the following skills upon training completion:
Describe the role of a CHW
Describe a healthy community and the factors affecting its health
Explain the implications of health statistics to community health and development
Discuss & apply the strategies/approaches necessary to educate members of the community
Serve as part of a health care team in service to individuals and families in the community
Demonstrate acquired knowledge, skills and behaviors of a CHW.
The Virtual CHW Training Program consists of online coursework with textbook, 15 virtual weekly sessions (one afternoon/week), 6 months of 1-on-1 coaching after training is completed, culminating in a Certificate of Completion after Final Presentations.
