The Community Health Worker Training Program includes 100 hours of classroom training that addresses the core competencies in health, knowledge of social service resources, communication skills, advocacy, CPR certification, lifespan development and basic community health worker skills. The in-class portion of the program will span ten weeks and be held twice a week for 8 hours per day (9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.) at HCAN’s offices in Walnut Hills. Full attendance is required for all in-class coursework.
Students must also complete 130 hours of a community-based practicum as required by the Ohio Board of Nursing for state certification. Health Care Access Now assists students to identify and complete the required community-based practicum with local hospitals, health care providers and nonprofit organizations.
Upon completion of the classroom training and community-based practicum, students are qualified to apply to the Ohio Board of Nursing for a certificate to practice as a Certified Community Health Worker.
