Elevate your skills as a CHW Trainer!
"The training was amazing. I am a visual learner w/ADD. If the training doesn't keep me engaged, I will start to do other things. This training kept me excited about the next thing, and the next thing. The facilitator did an amazing job at interacting with the group, and teaching."

Workshop Participant

"I was very impressed with the scope and completeness of your outline and guidelines for curriculum development. I came to the workshop to see that and to see if you touch on learner engagement. That is my passion as you so powerfully point out is essential to identify. I have never heard it discussed and honored so specifically in curriculum planning and development. I loved it! Thank you."

Workshop Participant

"This training was excellent for those that want to create a CHW program or those individuals who are building their infrastructure. Again, I thought I was going to receive some techniques on virtual learning. But overall, the training was interesting."
