The Community Health Training Institute, Inc. is a Texas non-profit corporation based in Fort Worth. Its focus is to develop curriculum that allows lay people and other health care personnel to be trained as certified Texas Community Health Workers.

Community Health Training Institute, Inc. (CHTI) was established after several years of training and teaching Community Health Workers at the UNT Health Science Center’s School of Public Health (UNTHSC). Under the project name, Texas Public Health Training Center (TPHTC), UNTHSC trained a number of Fort Worth based Community Health Workers (CHW) for service in several local social service agencies and hospital systems.
