Master Home Educators Wanted!

Master Home Educators Wanted!
 

Master Home Educators are a fundamental and vital element of our Healthy Homes program. Prospective Master Home Educators will complete 20 hours of comprehensive training on the home as a system, and learn how to identify common problems, the health implications of these problems, and how to fix them. The topics covered in the Healthy Homes training include: biological pollutants, chemical contaminants, and safety concerns.

We look for diverse individuals who are committed to actively participating in the training sessions and who will join us to improve the health of our Fort Collins community. Upon completion of the training, we ask that you dedicate 20 hours to the program and/or complete 2 home health assessments a month.
