All trainings, including online, face to face, learning resources and forums, are accessible  through the NYS Tobacco Control Professional Development and Training Program Moodle site.

The Moodle Site, supported by the University at Albany School of Public Health, serves as a blended learning portal that allows individuals to access self-paced online courses, live and “on demand” webinars, the latest news about tobacco control, educational resources, forums, learning activities and more. Moodle is web-based and can be accessed from anywhere.  Content on the Moodle platform is easily accessible across devices.  Moodle provides the structure needed to collaborate and communicate.

The NYS Tobacco Control Professional Development and Training Program Moodle Site is your professional development tool, and your active participation in the discussion forums, postings and learning activities is essential and critical.
