Research shows that navigators can help reduce health disparities, improve patient engagement with their health, enable patients to get the care they need, and reduce health care costs.
PNTC is committed to providing high-quality trainings so that navigators have the skills they need for this important work. We are thrilled to announce that our program is recognized by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment as a pathway to prepare for the Colorado health navigator assessment.

What is the Health Navigator Registry?
This voluntary registry allows employers to ensure they are hiring navigators who have demonstrated that they meet a standard set of competencies (skills).
To earn a spot on the registry, patient/health navigators are required to take training from a state-recognized training program and take the competency assessment. This registry is for unlicensed navigators working in Colorado.
