CHE Global Training Events – Times, Locations and Registration Information


Wondering what kind of training you need? Below are descriptions of different Training Seminars that are offered. CHE Training of Trainers (TOT) is designed to equip participants to implement their own integrated ministry of community health and evangelism in a target area. The training is done in three phases. Each phase involves 35 hours of learning followed by approximately six months in the field. CHE training is “just in time training” designed to give participants what they need to take the next step with their targeted communities.


TOT 1

This phase of training is aimed at understanding the Biblical basis for CHE and basic principles of wholistic community based development. Participants learn steps for implementing CHE, how to choose a target community, and strategies for entering the community. Participants learn basic skills for raising awareness, organizing, and mobilizing the community for cooperative action through the formation of a development committee.

TOT 2

This second phase is designed to prepare trainers for two tasks: (1) equipping the development committee to lead the development process in their own community, and (2) training CHE volunteers for home visitation. TOT 2 focuses on capacity building for the committee, facilitation skills for the trainer, teaching methods and materials, and equipping for the CHE volunteers.

TOT 3

This third phase of training is done after a CHE program is successfully adopted by a community. TOT III focuses on the evaluation of the project as well as how to multiply the project into other areas. This training is not required for a CHE program, but is very useful for evaluation, multiplication, and management of a program. A TOT 2-3 is often offered as a shortened version.

Other Training Opportunities

CHE workers address a variety of needs in the community. Different types of training are available to help address specific needs, (see below).

Training Methods that Empower for Change! Learning is facilitated in a participatory style through a process of guided self discovery using large and small group discussions, various hands-on activities, and methods that can be replicated to the village setting. From start to finish, locals are the decision makers in the CHE process. This ensures that programs are sustainable and contextualized.
