How long is the training? How is it structured?
There are five modules that CHWs can work through at their own pace.
What does the training cost?
The training regularly costs $80.
Are there any exceptions to that training cost?
The cost of the training is waived for all Nebraska CHWs until the end of September 2018. This allows all CHWs the opportunity to become better educated on chronic disease and their role in helping those living with chronic conditions.
Is there a certificate given after finishing the training?
After all five modules are completed, certificates of completion for each module will be available for CHWs to print off.
