Virtual Comprehensive Outreach Education Certificate (COEC)
The Comprehensive Outreach Education Certificate is a two-part training program that introduces Community Health Workers (CHWs) and other frontline health workers to a way of understanding health from a public health perspective. The training encourages participants to become proficient in a variety of health issues affecting diverse communities. The trainings emphasize three skills needed to do effective outreach: interventions such as conducting educational sessions at community sites and to various cultural groups; proficiency in providing information and referrals on a range of health topics; and shaping health messages to meet cultural and linguistic needs of target populations.
