Join CPCA and partners for an introduction to the registered apprenticeship model in community health center (CHC) settings and partnerships and grant opportunities available to launch an apprenticeship. Presenters of this webinar include Adele Burns, Regional Director of Apprenticeships from the Bay Area Community College Consortium, and Jake McClelland from Innovative Workforce Projects.

*Last year, in recognition of the tremendous financial stress members were facing and to ensure that important and timely information could be accessed with no barriers, CPCA elected to waive training fees for the entire membership year (April 1,2020- March 31, 2021) and offer all training at no cost. As we continue to work in this pandemic environment to provide members the support they need, we must also plan for the future while supporting community health centers in improving the health status of their communities through advocacy, education, and services. Which is why the Board of Directors approved a budget in February that reflects a reinstatement of training fees effective for trainings taking place on or after April 1, 2021. If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please email us at
