About the Center
The National CHW Training Center (NCHWTC) is housed within the Center for Community Health Development (CCHD), located at Texas A&M University’s School of Public Health.
In 2010, CCHD established the National Community Health Worker Training Center (NCHWTC) in response to partner community needs identified in South Texas. The NCHWTC is a Department of State Health Services certified Community Health Worker (CHW) training center that provides CHW and CHW Instructor certifications and continuing education units in-person and online, in English and Spanish.
In addition to training, the NCHWTC has participated as a collaborator in several research projects utilizing CHWs across the state.
To date, over 7000 trainees have been served by the NCHWTC.
