Community Health Workers Certificate Program

The Michigan Community Health Worker Alliance, in collaboration with Kellogg Community College and the Battle Creek Community Foundation is launching Community Health Worker training.

The curriculum is designed to train front-line health workers to provide culturally responsive services in Michigan communities. Each of the 8 core competencies are presented in modules that promote the
development of skills needed to become gainfully employed as a community health worker and enhance the knowledge base of those already employed. The internship consists of field experiences in local
agencies where the focus is for the student to apply and integrate their course work into practice. Students currently employed as CHWs will complete internship at their place of work.

Individuals who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of completion signed by MiCHWA. Successful completion
of the program does not guarantee employment but does enhance your employability in the community health worker profession.

Commitment: 126 Training Hours _(in-class sessions, homework, exams, independent study) + 40 Internship Hours (if not employed as a CHW)

Cost: $1220 per student
*Fee includes training materials and access to MiCHWA CHW Certification for one year, upon successful completion of the MiCHWA CHW Training Program.
