Community health workers teach the basics of good health and link people to health care and social service systems. Upon completion of MCTC’s 17-credit Community Health Worker (CMHW) certificate, you’ll be able to help improve health care access for underrepresented groups, the elderly and the chronically ill.
The entire CMHW certificate program is offered during the fall semester or can be split across spring and summer semesters.

The demand for community health workers is likely to increase as the population grows and ages. More trained workers will be needed at residential care facilities to help the elderly make appointments, coordinate referrals and follow medication instructions. Workers will also be needed at community-based and independent-living sites to assist the homeless, the mentally and physically disabled and those in substance abuse programs.
