Education and Training Requirements

High School

English, speech, and writing classes are highly recommended because you’ll need to be a top-notch communicator. Consider joining the debate club to obtain experience speaking in front of groups and conveying information. It’s a good idea to learn a foreign language in order to more effectively communicate with clients who do not speak English fluently or at all. Spanish is highly recommended, but other languages are also in demand. Some areas of the United States have a large number of immigrants from China, India, or the Philippines. Other community health jobs are located on Native American reservations or in locations that are near tribal areas. Take business management classes, run for student council, and try to serve on leadership positions on school committees or clubs to build your leadership and managerial skills. Other recommended high school classes include health, anatomy and physiology, science, mathematics, statistics, data analysis, computer science, database management, social studies, and psychology.
