We offer two tracks for certification, SCCT and Legacy. CHWs are eligible for certification once they complete SCCT, while Legacy honors CHWs for their lived experience.

For Advanced Levels - We recognize that CHWs provide leadership throughout all levels of the Socio-Ecological Framework. To that end, CHWs have the opportunity to pursue advanced levels of certification, honoring the work they have led in their communities.
