Community Health Worker Training

About the Career

The Empowering the Masses Community Health Worker Training (CHW) Program is a Texas  Department of State Health Services (DSHS) approved CHW Training Site for both CHW 160- hour (12 Weeks) training and CEU training for CHWs and CHWIs.
  • CHWs are trained to make household visits in their community and identify early symptoms of diseases. At these household visits, CHWs are trained to provide health education on how to prevent disease as well as to identify any troubling symptoms.
  • CHWs are also trained to provide referrals to nearby clinics and health facilities for treatment, and to report the disease cases.
