Finding online training is easy. Finding the right training can be tough. While multiple funders and organizations support online training, these systems and services are not yet fully coordinated. To ensure the nation’s 500,000 public health professionals can respond rapidly to critical and ever-evolving needs, the National Coordinating Center for Public Health Training (NCCPHT) at the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) has partnered with 10 Regional Public Health Training Centers (RPHTCs) and 40 local performance sites (LPS). The partnership represents a unified, national network of public health training and educational resources—the Public Health Learning Network (PHLN).
This Web Forum shares how the PHLN is building and sustaining a national system for outstanding public health training. It features the Midwestern Public Health Training Center sharing its approach to engaging adult learners, as well as an overview of its recent workforce development activities.
