Certification Application Workshop in English

February 22, 2024 : 12:00 pm 1:30 pm

Learn How to Apply for Certification!

Begin preparing your application, including portfolio, for submission to the RI Certification Board.

(Hay un taller en español el 21 de marzo.)

February 22, 12pm-1:30pm
Virtual over Zoom

If you have already taken a Community Health Worker training and want guidance on applying for CHW certification in RI, this workshop is for you! This free virtual workshop will give advice, clarity and facts about preparing your portfolio. Please note: CHWARI does not provide the certification itself; that authority resides with the RI Certification Board. In that light, this workshop will provide basic guidance but will refer you to the RICB for more complex questions.

Certification (or a plan with your employer to get it) is necessary for getting Medicaid reimbursement for your CHW services, so register today!

This workshop is open to those who:

  • Have completed 70 hours of Core Competency CHW Training, or who are currently enrolled in a training program that will result in meeting that requirement (having applied for such a training does not count, but we will have other workshops in the future)
  • Are employed as CHWs or who have completed 1000 hours of CHW work in recent years
  • Will fulfill the 1000 CHW work hours required within the next two months

If you have not yet completed Core Competency CHW Training, join the Community Health Worker Association of RI here to learn about upcoming training opportunities.

Register for this workshop ASAP!

If you have any questions, please email CHWARI’s CHW Communications & Outreach Assistant, Dimaura Tavares, at dtavares@ric.edu.
