A note about DMHA Sponsored CHW/CRS Trainings:

Thank you for your interest in a CHW/CRS trainings sponsored by DMHA.  

Please be advised that the demand for these trainings is always particularly high in relation to the additional trainings we offer throughout the year and, as a result, we always receive a large volume of applications. Since limited space is available for these trainings, applicants not selected are added to a waitlist for future sponsored trainings. As the waitlist continues to grow and we receive more applications than can be accommodated, we have found that some applicants have been required to remain on the waitlist for up to six months or more.  

We at MHANI are aware that this process can often be frustrating, but also felt it was our responsibility to keep the public informed and apprised of the situation should you still choose to continue to apply for a sponsored training.
