Temple University Harrisburg (TUH) Community Health Worker Training Program (VIRTUAL)

This live-virtual 90-hour non-credit course is designed to provide the core competencies needed for work in community-based care. While the actual functions of Community Health Workers may vary by size and type of practice, healthcare specialty, or patient needs, all Community Health Workers must possess fundamental competencies to be successful in the role of working with patients towards the overarching goal of increasing appropriate utilization of health care services, particularly among under-served populations.  Successful completion of this program will equip the participant with the knowledge, skills, and techniques to better meet the needs of clients and patients they serve, and prepare them for a variety of jobs in the community health field.

Temple University is a Pennsylvania Certification Board (PCB) approved provider of this live virtual 90-hour non-credit course. Completing the full 90 hours fulfills the education requirement for the Pennsylvania state Certified Community Health Worker (CCHW) credential!


This SPRING 2023 cohort was postponed to February 21st-June 8th, 2023 start date. 

Classes will be held virtually via Zoom on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00pm - 9:00pm Eastern Standard Time.
