How long is the CHW Certification valid for? How do I renew it?

Certification is valid for 2 years.  In order to renew certification, the Certified CHW must complete 15 hours of qualified continuing education activities (approved by the Board).

The Board has not yet approved the criteria for continuing education activities nor developed criteria for the organizations that could provide the contact hours.  Once approved, the list of continuing education providers will be maintained and published by the Board.
