CHW/CRS certification involves a five day training, where participants are taught the skills they need to know to effectively mentor their peers; there is an exam at the end of the five day training that tests the knowledge participants have gained. Once a participant has passed the exam, they receive a formal state certification. Peers who complete and pass the CRS training also become certified as CHWs, as the CHW training is included in the 5-day CRS training.
