The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) will be offering another session of the Health Navigation competency assessment through The Center for Advancing Professional Excellence (CAPE) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. This session will only be offered virtually on June 3, 2022, and June 7, 2022. To register for the assessment, individuals must have completed verified coursework from a state-recognized training program (Otero College, Patient Navigator Training Collaborative, Boomers Leading Change, Metro State University at Denver). Please complete the Colorado Health Navigator Registry Application to verify training prior to registration for the assessment. After completed training is verified, you will receive a link to register for the assessment.
Currently, CDPHE is providing scholarships to individuals who are employed with an organization and are working on initiatives for specific chronic diseases. Scholarships will be in the form of reimbursement to a candidate’s employer after the employer pays for the cost of the assessment. For more information and to apply for the scholarship, please complete the form. Please note that the form must be completed by the employer, not the candidate, and the candidate must be registered for the assessment no fewer than 20 days prior to the assessment.
