Dental Apprenticeship Program

WACMHC offers workforce development training programs for both new hires and incumbent workers at community health centers. Apprenticeship programs provide a flexible, low-cost alternative to college programs for workers to obtain their certification, credentialing and job placement with our member CHCs in their field. We offer a variety of online, in-person and apprenticeship based trainings on specialty skills and topics for CHC staff and new hires.
