New Tools to Help You Find Trainings

NWCPHP announces a new training finder and a public health law training database to help you find the right combination of format, time, cost, and subject matter.

We are pleased to announce a new NWCPHP training finder and a public health law training database to help you find the right combination of format, time, cost, and subject matter.

January 9, 2013

With the launch of NWCPHP’s redesigned website, we introduce a brand new search feature to help you make better use of all our available trainings.

In over 20 years of creating trainings, NWCPHP has amassed approximately 200 trainings—webinars, online courses, toolkits and guides, tabletops, as well as our institute and certificate programs. You can now search, sort, and filter this list by topic, time required to complete, cost, and learning format. You can also do a simple keyword search of all our trainings. In addition, we have standardized the description pages, so you can compare trainings and quickly assess if it meets your needs.

We work constantly to add more to our offerings. Every month Hot Topics adds a new, cutting edge webinar, and our training team is always working to update or add to our list of online courses. Most recently, our training team is working on updates to the  Emergency Risk Communication for Public Health Professionals online course, which will be released soon. And in December we released a completely new online course, Responding to Disasters: Mental Health Crisis Management.

In addition to the NWCPHP Training Finder, we have also launched a Public Health Law Training Database, as part of our Robert Wood Johnson Public Health Law Training Project. This tool gathers course information about available law trainings around the country, allowing you to sort them by training format and topic. If you are aware of any new trainings that should be added to the database, please contact us.

Take a look and try both of these tools. We are excited to hear your feedback about what you like and what can be improved. Contact us with your thoughts.
