NWCPHP is excited to launch its most recent workforce training needs assessment. We encourage public health practitioners around the region to complete the survey and share their most urgent training needs and preferred training formats.

Here are five reasons why you should take the survey today.

1. Your feedback is valuable. NWCPHP uses these results to plan training activities for the next several years. Your input will help us develop training offerings that truly reflect the emerging, real-world needs of public health workers.

2. Your professional development goals get a boost. This assessment is competency-based and asks how you'd like to receive individual training. By considering which core public health skills and abilities you want to improve upon, you can also jumpstart your own professional development plan. NWCPHP's trainings can help you put that plan into action!

3. Your agency can benefit. NWCPHP shares the aggregated survey results with many public health organizations, which use those results to build workforce development and training plans. This is especially helpful for agencies that are preparing for accreditation.

4. Your efforts support the entire region. It's important to have region-wide participation in this survey so we can compare results across states. Having high participation helps public health leaders in multiple jurisdictions identify overlapping needs and potential collaborative resources to address them.

5. Your time is limited. This survey only happens once every three years. Don't miss the opportunity to make your voice heard about how public health will operate in the coming years. The survey closes July 1, 2016.

The survey should take less than 25 minutes to complete.
