People in a CHW training class.
Stragies are necessary for the formal preparation of CHWs since:

  • Skills standards are linked to occupational recognition and funding of CHWs
  • Most training is post-hire due to the lack of a functioning job market
  • Training has historically been provided on the job by employers
  • Community colleges presently face little demand for CHW education
