Commitment to Action

Employer Driven Training for Community Health Center Jobs

Commitment by

Community Health Care Association of New York State

In 2013, CHCANYS committed to scale statewide a medical assistant training approach established in New York City from 2012 to 2013 that will train 200 incumbent workers for higher wage positions as medical assistants to help support New York State's implementation of the Affordable Care Act. This approach will assure that education and training programs are responsive to the needs of employers by facilitating strategic partnerships across Federally Qualified Health Centers, community colleges, and local and regional workforce training programs (including Workforce Investment Boards). CHCANYS will leverage the experience gained during the pilot program, including an in-depth approach to curriculum development, to successfully leverage Workforce Investment Act training funds to support student completion, and take into account lessons learned from challenges in the recruitment and scheduling of the implemented training programs.
