How does one become a community health worker? Is there licensing/ certification requirements?

This varies from state to state. A few states leading the way in expanding CHW use such as MA and TX have certification requirements. I am not aware of any with licensing requirements. The usual way someone becomes a CHW is that that s/he is hired by an agency that provides CHW services and is trained on the job.
