Alaska Community Health Aides are selected by their communities prior to receiving training.

Training centers are located in Anchorage, Bethel, Nome and Fairbanks. Traditionally, there are four sessions of CHA training, each of which lasts three to four weeks. Currently, there are distance learning opportunities for session training limiting time spent away from their communities. Between sessions, CHAs work in their clinics completing a skills list and practicum. After successfully completing the four-session training curriculum and a clinical skills preceptorship and examination, the CHA qualifies as a Community Health Practitioner (CHP). CHA/Ps at any level of training may obtain certification by the Community Health Aide Program Certification Board (CHAPCB).
