Public Health Training & Professional Development Services

The Center for Public Health Continuing Education can offer your organization a variety of public health training and professional development services.

  • Blended Learning: This includes classroom-based training with a distance (online via the internet) learning component, such as live or archived webinars, webcasts and/or asynchronous online learning platforms. Blended learning can offer a richer continuing education experience for the participant and allow for the transfer of knowledge to practice-based skills.
  • Continuing Education Credits: We are an approved provider of Continuing Medical Education Credits, Nursing Contact Hours, and continuing credits for Certified Health Education Specialists. For select training programs, we can also offer continuing education credits to those who are Certified in Public Health, lactation consultants and social workers (through collaboration with the University at Albany School of Social Welfare).
  • Curriculum Development: We can assist with designing a learning experience for adult learners. This includes identifying goals and objectives, choosing the appropriate learning methods, organizing or modularizing content for delivery, and incorporating activities for adult learners.
  • Distance Learning: We specialize in coordination, delivery (through collaboration with subject matter experts) and evaluation of webinars, webcasts, and self-paced courses. This includes the delivery of information and content to participants via the internet, so they do not have to travel or participate in a set physical location.
  • Needs Assessment and Evaluation: We can conduct needs assessments to identify specific training needs. This includes the development and distribution of online and/or paper-based surveys and conduct of focus groups and/or key informant interviews. We also specialize in the development and implementation of post-training surveys, for both online and classroom-based training.
  • Online Registration: We can customize registration for various training events and programs. This includes the development and distribution of email invitations, confirmations and reminders.
  • Technical Assistance: We provide advice, support, and training on public health related activities such as program planning, action plan development and program evaluation.
  • Training Coordination and Facilitation: We coordinate both small and large trainings including securing meeting space, managing online registration, room set up and AV equipment, ordering food, developing curriculum, securing subject matter experts, as well as providing on-site training support and facilitation.
  • Training Toolkits: This includes the development, design, printing, and collation of hard copy toolkit materials (including folders, frequently asked questions, posters, tear off memo-pads, DVD or jump drive duplication, etc.)
