How To Get A Community Health Worker Certification For Free
If you are looking to pad your resume, a Community Health Worker Certification is a good option to consider.
In many cases, this certification would cost you anywhere from $750 to $1500 if you were to take the online class, but in this week's community resource I will show you how to obtain this certification for free.
As long as you have 1,000 hours of work in the healthcare or social services sector within the past 3 years you should qualify for this certification. That 1,000-hour requirement equates to a little over 6 months of working full-time in healthcare or social services.
See our resource titled Texas Community Health Worker Certification: How To Receive A $750 Training For Free if you are interested in updating your resume.

- Vaccines At Home - There is a Texas Mobile Vaccine Program that offers the shot to homebound seniors or even businesses with employees who are interested in the COVID 19 vaccine.
- $150 Incentive For Taking The Vaccine - The City of Houston is offering $150 in gift cards to anyone who still needs the COVID 19 vaccine. The city has specific health centers that are offering the vaccine and gift cards. You will need to view each location to learn about times and dates that you can get vaccinated and receive your $150.
