About the Program

While the Cross Cultural Health Care Program directly conducts trainings for health and human services organizations, we believe strongly in the value of multiplying results by preparing trainers who work within those organizations.  CCHCP’s unique Training of Trainers (ToT) program works by building the internal capacity of health and human services organizations with a set of curricula and instruction developed over 25 years of experience. CCHCP facilitators work with trainers sponsored by their organization for an initial 40-hour training period, training them to become licensed to train our equity and inclusion course material internally within their organization and in their community.  During the two-year (renewable) license period, trainers receive continued support and resources to enhance their development as trainers. Each organization that becomes licensed to train will also receive a Wall Certificate with a license number unique to the organization.

What You Learn

ToT attendees learn a theoretical framework of cultural competence in health and human services.  You learn to become confident and adept at teaching tangible skills necessary to provide culturally responsive care, and to develop an authentic approach toward addressing and disrupting inequities while being respectful of preserving relationships. The instruction includes a detailed review of thirteen modules of curriculum, hours of lessons on training techniques, individualized opportunities to teach-back a module with feedback from your training cohort and instructor, and the comradery of learning with a diverse group of individuals from various work environments.

Our program includes learning how to train on topics such as:

  • The principles of cultural competence
  • Understanding the dynamics of difference
  • The culture of Western medicine/biomedicine
  • Accountabilities: National CLAS (Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services) standards, Joint Commission accreditation standards, and more
  • Building culturally competent community partnerships
  • Building a culturally competent system of care

Who Should Apply

If you are an HR professional in the health care or human services field seeking to build your in-house training capabilities, our ToT program is for you.
