Standardizing Training Excellence

Enhance Your Community Health Worker Training Program with our CHW Training Curriculum.



Community Health Workers (CHWs) are pivotal in promoting health equity and reducing health disparities. Ensuring CHWs are well-trained and equipped with the necessary skills is essential for maximizing their impact. One effective way to achieve this is through the use of licensed training curricula. Licensed training curricula provide numerous benefits that can significantly enhance CHW training programs, including standardized content, evidence-based practices, and comprehensive training materials. Here’s how these aspects can improve CHW training outcomes.


Standardized Content

One of the primary advantages of licensed curricula is the provision of standardized content. Standardization ensures that all CHWs receive the same high-quality education, regardless of where they are trained. This consistency is crucial for maintaining the integrity of the CHW role across different regions and organizations. The Essential Community Health Worker Training Curriculum by Umemba Health aligns with national standards and is designed to be used in diverse settings with diverse learners. Whether delivered virtually or in person, this curriculum ensures that all CHWs receive uniform training, which is fundamental in promoting uniformity in CHW services and competencies.


Evidence-Based Practices

Licensed curricula are often developed by experts who incorporate the latest evidence-based practices into their training materials. This ensures that CHWs are not only learning theoretical knowledge but are also equipped with practical skills that are backed by current research and best practices. Our Community Health Worker Training Curriculum covers 25 modules across core, intermediate, and advanced topics. Each module is designed to foster interactive and dynamic training sessions, emphasizing adult learning principles and popular education. This approach helps CHWs apply their learning effectively in real-world situations, thereby enhancing their preparedness and effectiveness in the field.


Comprehensive Training Materials

The inclusion of comprehensive training materials is another significant benefit of licensed curricula. When developed correctly, these materials often include detailed lesson plans, PowerPoint slide decks with corresponding scripts, discussion questions, activities, and suggested self-study assignments. For instance, our Community Health Worker Training Curriculum offers meticulously prepared lesson plans that serve as a starting guide for CHW instructors. The curriculum also includes engaging activities and assignments designed to reinforce learning and ensure that CHWs can apply their knowledge practically. Moreover, the flexibility to supplement the curriculum with handouts and ancillary materials allows for customization to meet specific learning needs.
