Center for Public Health Preparedness Web-based Coursework
Developed in partnership with technological experts from the Professional Development Program at the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs, the 18 web-based courses are self-paced, available 24/7 and highly interactive. Courses are developed in line with competencies for emergency preparedness and terrorism readiness and focus on a wide variety of topics, from Forensic Epidemiology to HazMat Transportation Incidents. The web-based Community Response to Pandemics course is of particular interest world-wide, with countless academic institutions, health care and government agencies disseminating and requesting use of material to support their training programs (for example, NACCHO, WHO, USA Prepare, National Emergency Response & Rescue Training Center, the International Association of Fire Chiefs).
