Leading Communities Toward a Culture of health

Continuing Education

Certified CHWs are required to complete 20 hours of continuing education (CEU) to maintain their certificate.  Continuing Education must provide information that complies with the DSHS core competency mandates http://www.dshs.texas.gov/mch/chw/chwdocs.aspx.  Of the 20 CEU hours required, at least 10 must be provided by a DSHS Gateway to Care certified Community Health Worker Training Institute (CHWTI).  Gateway to Care provides CEU throughout the year (Schedule of CEU Classes.2017 updated 5.10.2017).

CHWTI collaborates with community partners of the Texas Gulf Coast CHW/Promotores Association.  The Association hosts quarterly meetings as well as the annual CHW/Promator(a) Conference in Houston.  CEUs are provided through the Association meetings and the conference.

Workshops are developed to fill the needs of CHWs, however certification is not required to attend. If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please email chwti@gatewaytocare.org.
