Become a Contact Tracer
Westmoreland is now offering a Contact Tracer Training Program. Participants will learn the definition, steps, skills and qualities necessary for contact tracing in this fully remote program.
Why Contact Tracing?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is estimated the United States will need a growing number of individuals in the public health workforce dedicated to case identification and contact tracing. Average contact tracing wages are estimated at $19/hour, which is based on the average pay for a community health worker. More Information
This training will also assist with job preparation and resume writing. We are not hiring and/or placing contact tracers and there is no guarantee of employment.
This program will be completed remotely via Zoom and independent study over a three-week period:
- No classes are scheduled at this time.
Tuition for the contract tracing program is $400.
A high school diploma or GED is preferred.
