Continuing Education Units
The South Carolina Community Health Worker Association’s (SCCHWA) Credentialing Council is excited to announce that they are now accepting applications from organizations and individuals interested in providing Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Specialty Track Courses for Community Health Workers (CHWs). These educational offerings will be critical for the ongoing professional development of certified CHWs, as they work towards maintaining their certification and staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in the field.
CEUs are essential for the recertification process, ensuring that certified CHWs continue to meet the highest standards of care and expertise. To maintain their certification, CHWs will be required to complete 24 hours of Continuing Education Units. By offering CEUs and Specialty Track Courses, organizations and individuals can play a vital role in supporting the CHW community, contributing to their growth and development, and ultimately enhancing the quality of health care services provided to communities across South Carolina.
To uphold the quality, integrity, and Best Practice Standards of continuing education offered by SCCHWA, prospective providers must complete the necessary steps outlined below:
- Submit the required information: In order to be considered as a provider for CEUs and Specialty Track Courses, interested organizations and individuals must submit the requested information through the application form provided by the South Carolina Community Health Worker Credentialing Council. The application can be accessed at the following link: CEUs Application
- Plan ahead: The Credentialing Council requires that all submissions be made at least 60 days prior to the planned offering date of the CEUs or Specialty Track Courses. This ensures that the Council has ample time to review and approve the educational materials, guaranteeing the highest quality learning experience for CHWs.
By providing CEUs and Specialty Track Courses, organizations and individuals can make a meaningful impact on the professional development of Community Health Workers in South Carolina. The South Carolina Community Health Worker Association’s Credentialing Council encourages all interested parties to submit their applications and contribute to the ongoing growth and success of the CHW community.
