More Information:

A community health worker is a frontline public health worker who is a trusted member of and/or has a deep understanding of the population being served. This trusting relationship enables the worker to serve as a liaison/link/intermediary between health/social services and the community to facilitate access to services, as well as improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery (American Public Health Association)

The University of Texas at Tyler Health Science Center is a certified community health worker (CHW) training center that offers a CHW Certification Training Course with a rich history of successfully developing highly skilled CHWs and a robust selection of continuing education units (CEUs) for both CHWs and CHW instructors.

The upcoming 16-week Community Health Worker Training Course will begin on January 30, 2023. This is an online course that follows a set schedule with 2-3 virtual meetings throughout. Students will learn to master the 8 Core Competency Skills of a Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Certified CHW, including: communication, advocacy, interpersonal, teaching, service coordination, organizational, capacity-building, and knowledge base on specific health issues. Upon completion of the course, the newly Certified CHW will have access through the UT Tyler Health Science Center to collaborations with research projects and other CHWs across the state of Texas, apprenticeship opportunities, and CHW CEUs which are required by DSHS to maintain certification.

If you or someone you know may be interested in learning more about the CHW Training Course, please visit Community Health Worker Training Center – The University of Texas at Tyler Health Science Center ( or contact us at
